Most volunteers work one 3 hour shift each week 3 or 4 times each month.
This person welcomes all clients, updates existing client records or creates a new client record, determines the client's immediate needs, and forwards the client to the service(s) requested. The receptionist works at a desk with a desktop computer and printer. Paper documents are often prepared. A naturally pleasant demeanor, good questioning skills, basic computer operation knowledge, and patience are important keys to success for the receptionist.
This person receives clients into our pantry, describes what is currently available, and helps clients find and pack their pantry needs. This volunteer also receives incoming deliveries, unpacks boxes of provisions, stocks shelves and freezers, and advance-fills bags of food and goods to be given out. A clear speaking voice, physical stamina and/or upper body strength, and an ability and willingness to work in a small, crowded space are needed for this job.
This person receives clients into our clothing room, asks what is needed, points out what is currently available, and helps clients find and pack their clothing needs. Also, this volunteer accepts incoming clothing deliveries, unpacks and sorts items received, places them on hangers and/or shelves, and generally keeps the clothing room tidy. A clear speaking voice, physical stamina and a willingness to strive to keep an untidy space tidy are helpful for this position.
This person has the critical job of determining when, how, and the amount of financial assistance to provide to clients. Rental assistance, assistance with heating bills and other utilities, prescription medicine purchases, and other urgent financial needs are requested and met each day.

Good questioning skills, logical thinking, and sound decision making are critical skills for this job.

You will be given answers to the daily questions and troubleshooting scenarios. You have to be a problem solver at times due to the needs of the clients as some may new to CCAP.
