The Action Center will host a “Volunteer Opportunities Fair” on March 11th, from 10am to 1pm in the new Program Services Building at 8745 W. 14th Ave, Lakewood. Learn about the numerous client programs located in the newly renovated building and the many volunteer opportunities that support these programs.
The Action Center provides an immediate response to basic human needs and promotes pathways to self-sufficiency to struggling families and individuals in our county. It is the most comprehensive nonprofit agency in Jefferson County and serves nearly 30,000 unduplicated households annually from immediate needs to self-sufficiency programs. The new facility is scheduled to open to the public in late April.
The new Program Services building will include a self-select grocery in which individuals choose their own food based on the USDA’s nutritious “My Plate” standards. In addition, there are volunteer opportunities in the clothing and household areas, client intake, client advocacy, greeters, grocery shopping assistants and grocery restock volunteers.
The Action Center relies on more than 80 volunteers each day to run everything from drop-in intervention services to the appointment based case management program. An additional 50 volunteers are needed each week to assist clients and staff in the new facility. Applicants interested in both long-term and one-time volunteer opportunities are welcomed to attend. Volunteering is more fun with friends, so please bring others who might be interested!
