What we are looking for:
Family & Children’s Agency is seeking volunteers to provide the Sunday lunch for homeless adults at our Community Connections Center. This includes, planning and purchasing store or restaurant cooked meals then delivering it to our Community Connections Center. Approximately 40-50 adults visit the center each day and we offer them a mid-day meal as their opportunity for meals at the local shelter is limited on Sundays. This is a great opportunity for a group of friends, family or co-workers to get together and volunteer. The meal may be a simple sandwich platter and fruit, a warm casserole, pasta dish or soup/stew and bread. Any healthy option is very much appreciated and volunteers should plan on purchasing lunch for 30-40 adults.  Program Information Established in 1986, the Community Connections Program at Family & Children’s Agency have established a continuum of care for homeless adults. We have homelessness prevention programs, programs working with adults experiencing homelessness, and supportive housing. The Community Connections Center in South Norwalk provides a safe, supportive, partial day social and recreational opportunity for homeless individuals. Most are clients from the Norwalk or Westport shelters; all have limited resources and difficulty coping with day-to-day expectations.  With its non-structured atmosphere, the Community Connections Center is the first step toward engaging clients in needed treatment and rehabilitation. Requirements Volunteers must purchase and deliver lunches by 12 noon on a designated Sunday. Volunteers can commit to one time, or provide lunch on a scheduled basis. Skills Needed: Dependable Organized Preparation   Family & Children’s Agency is a leading non-profit, human service organization that is committed to increasing the social and emotional well-being of our clients. We provide strength-based, solution focused services that respond to the individual needs of children & families, youth, adults, and seniors. Last year more than 10,000 individuals of all ages and all walks of life experienced life-altering, positive changes as a result of their work with Family & Children’s Agency.
