Community Sponsor - Center for Women

Community Sponsors receive training to take our residents (who are still technically incarcerated) off-site and out into the community for shopping, meetings, activities, concerts, etc. Our residents are completing the last 1 to 2 years of their prison sentences with us. We encourage them to go off-site with volunteers to help them gain experience back in "the real world", make new, healthy contacts, participate in fun community activities, and purchase items needed to help with their reintegration such as work clothes.

This is an ongoing need and requires responsible FEMALE volunteers willing to make a long term commitment to serve and receive ongoing training. Volunteers set their own hours, and we generally ask that each volunteer take a resident out at least once a month. One volunteer may take up to 3 residents at a time (once you are comfortable with doing so). It does not have to be on a Tuesday, Share Charlotte just required us to enter a date. You can do any day you want and any time between 9am and 10pm.
