COVID-19 response created urgency for sheltering those experiencing homelessness. Now to maximize this collaborative momentum and HELP TURN SHELTER INTO HOME for thousands more, the UPLIFT Home Team program is recruiting, training & mobilizing committed teams of compassionate "A Team" VOLUNTEER ADVOCATES to enhance the performance and outcomes of overburdened homeless services providers.

"A Team" Volunteer Advocates



It is estimated as many as 20% of rental subsidy vouchers in San Diego County expire because Client & Case Manager Teams must accomplish complicated steps to access very, very limited apartment inventory. Connectivity to resources is key. Housing placement often occurs faster and is more successful long term with Volunteer Advocate support. 



YOU! With the help of Volunteer Advocates, like you, we can help more people access housing faster! Uplift Home Team is recruiting “A Team” Volunteer Advocates to assist with homeless housing placement & stability. Select applicants will be equipped and deployed to assist temporarily sheltered Clients and their Case Managers with all levels of housing placement and stability. The reward? Transforming lives forever, uplifting San Diego for all!
