Why Volunteer?

The day is possible due to the help of many volunteers.  During Homeless Resource Day, students from Montgomery College, the University of Maryland School of Nursing and community members volunteer.  They assist in various roles-one of the most rewarding is serving as a guide to escort homeless guests through the facility helping them navigate services, vendors and exhibits.  Some of the comments last year were:

  • "I think what you people are doing for the homeless is wonderful; I am very thankful, my guide was awesome."
  • "People respected my dignity and my guide from the University of Maryland kept me focused."
  • "The guide was fabulous; she was extremely helpful and patient."
