Four hour shifts two to three times per week, provide outreach to those suffering from Substance Abuse Disorder in East Skagit County. Current driver’s license, proof of insurance, and knowledge of East County area required. Volunteers will go out in pairs to provide street outreach to those suffering from Substance Use Disorder in Skagit County, who appear to be using opioids and are living outdoors or in their automobiles. Volunteers will be assessing their need for clothing, food, personal hygiene, and connecting them to local services. In addition, they will be assessing if they are opioid users and distributing Fentanyl testing kits or Narcan testing kits, and will develop a relationship with clients built on trust to help move them to pursue recovery options when they indicate they are ready. If volunteers have a history of Substance Abuse Disorder they must have at least one year of sobriety before they begin volunteering with the program.
