RSVP online now for the upcoming December 18 Day of Caring

Project Details:
Transitional Housing has selected this timeframe because the first two weeks of each month are dedicated to an intensive job readiness program. By the third week, the goal at Transitional Housing is to have the women prepared for mock interviews. The following first three tasks would be the primary focus of this Day of Caring. If time allows and/or THI has a small caseload one month, volunteers could include items 4 and 5.

  • Mock interviews - Transitional Housing, Inc. will provide a feedback sheet/report card for the volunteers to use and assess clients;
  • Resume development or enhancement;
  • Provide suggestions to clients for job leads - This may include assistance with online applications and/or offering suggestions to the client about prospective employers based upon her job interests and employment background;
  • Professional attire - Using THI’s Lending Closet;
  • Professional etiquette

About Transitional Housing, Inc.:
For nearly twenty-five years Transitional Housing, Inc. has worked to end the cycle of homelessness by providing homeless women with a safe environment, programs and services that promote self-sufficiency and independence.
