|The current COVID-19 public health emergency is creating a labor crisis for health care facilities and nonprofits across the state that serve vulnerable people on the frontlines. Non-medical volunteers are needed to help health care facilities and community providers continue to provide crucial services.|
|Non-Medical Volunteers Frontline nonprofits – particularly food banks/pantries, meal delivery services, and homeless shelters – are seeing a marked increase in demand for their services.|
CT Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (CT VOAD), United Way of Connecticut, and the Office of the Governor have created a Disaster Assistance and Response Technology (DART) volunteer database – “CT DART”. This data base allows nonprofits to register their needs; volunteers to sign up; and matches to be made between the two to source new labor to support the frontline nonprofits through this crisis. Non-Medical volunteers can register HERE.
You should not volunteer if you are at risk or compromised
If you are immunocompromised, over 60, are showing symptoms of COVID-19, or live with or care for someone in any of those categories, you should avoid being in public – including for volunteer efforts. Please stay safe, stay home.
