Volunteer

The success of Project Homeless Connect (PHC) Buffalo is due to the ongoing dedication of volunteers. We welcome volunteers from every sector of Western New York work together to provide efficient and compassionate service to those in need. Volunteers lead and manage most service areas. The common goal is to provide relevant and easily accessible onsite services for clients while creating a valuable experience for all volunteers.

Volunteer Registration 
Registration for our 2017 event is currently closed.

We encourage you to visit VolunteerWNY.org to learn more about year-round volunteer opportunities.

Important Event Details
On the day of the event, please enter through the front doors of the Buffalo Convention Center located on Franklin Street.  All volunteer should report to Volunteer Registration table, located on the left side of the lobby, where you will receive a volunteer T-Shirt and assignments for the day. An orientation and site walk through will be held for each group of volunteers prior to clients arrival.

Dress
We encourage volunteer to dress comfortably as most of our volunteer positions involve standing and/or walking. Registered volunteers will be given event t-shirts at the event to make themselves more recognizable to clients. We encourage volunteers to wear light layers in order to be comfortable throughout the day.

What to Bring 
We strongly encourage volunteers leave any non-esstential items i.e. purses, backpacks, etc at home. Volunteer and service provider will have access to the break room but it will not be locked. Please bring only what you can hold/carry on your person. Any items left are at your own risk.

Transportation and Parking
There are multiple parking ramps and lots near and around the Buffalo Convention Center. Unfortunately, PHC Buffalo is unable to reimburse volunteers for any cost associated with parking on the day of the event.
The Buffalo Convention Center can also be reached via the Metro Rail Downtown. The closest stops are “Franklin and Mohawk” and “Franklin and Court”.
