Volunteers needed for Hollywood Homeless Registry Week

The Hollywood 4WRD (4 Walls, a Roof and a Door) coalition, in partnership with Common Ground, is looking for volunteers to participate in Hollywood Homeless Registry Week, which is April 25 through 30.

The goal is to create a by-name database of homeless individuals living on the streets of Hollywood who are most at-risk of premature death. This prioritization will help the Hollywood community better allocate housing and supportive services to those who need it most.

Volunteers will be partnered with experienced outreach workers. However, a brief training is required to participate. The training session will be held on April 25 from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. at Hollywood Fountain South (6501 Fountain Ave.). Volunteers are strongly encouraged to serve all three days, but may specify availability on the online registration form.
