Non-Medical Volunteers Urgently Needed

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.
