2017 PHCO Volunteer Registration


Volunteer Opportunities:

Thank you for your interest in volunteering for PHCO! Last year, more than 400 guests were connected to services and assisted by more than 1,000 volunteers!
Most volunteers will serve as Navigators and guide guests through the process of accessing services. Health sciences volunteers with specialized education and/or licensure will provide health screenings through an interprofessional practice teaching model. Additional volunteers are needed for set-up, clean-up, registration and food service.

The University encourages employees to participate as a volunteer for Project Homeless Connect Omaha. Creighton has approved staff to use excused paid time to volunteer at this event. It is important, however, to obtain prior approval from supervisors to ensure departments have the coverage necessary to conduct business.

Other Opportunities

Navigators are matched with a guest to assist him or her in filling out a basic in-take form and in walking through the community resources and health screenings offered at the event. Navigators are not expected to be experts in the fields of social or health services or provide counseling to guests. Rather, Navigators are there to walk alongside the guest to ensure their needs are met. Your role will include building rapport with the guest, creating a comfortable environment, and ensuring guests dignity as they travel through the various stations.

You must be 19 years old as of March 31, 2017 to volunteer as a Navigator. Creighton students [only] who do not meet the age requirement may sign a waiver to participate.

Questions about volunteering as a Navigator? Please email us at phco@creighton.edu.
