Can you be of service to someone with HIV/AIDS? Volunteer in our CareTeam Program & make a difference in the life of a person with HIV/AIDS!
CareTeams are groups of 4-7 volunteers who provide practical and emotional support to a person or household affected by the loneliness and isolation of HIV/AIDS and/or addiction. CareTeam members build supportive relationships with those we serve through:
- Listening nonjudgmentally
- Sharing coffee or a meal
- Giving a ride to the doctor
- Visiting when sick
- Celebrating special occasions
Training topics include:
- HIV/AIDS 101
- Grief and loss
- Active listening
- Mental health
- Addiction and recovery
- Working with stigmatized populations
Volunteers agree to a commitment of a minimum of 3 hours per month for one year.
The next Rosehedge Multifaith Works CareTeam training is Saturday, October 27th from 8:45am to 5pm at 1401 E. Jefferson.
