20 Apr COLA Q+A with the Volunteer Coordinator of Transitions Homeless Center
“DYK that April 19-23 is National Volunteer Week? Today we are taking a moment to recognize and appreciate the time volunteers dedicate to our community and highlighting 1 spot in town that counts on 20+ volunteers a day.
Transitions Homeless Center is the Midlands’ largest homeless shelter serving 13 counties, including Richland and Lexington. The downtown organization provides men + women 18 years and older housing, hot meals, showers, and resources.
Transitions works with an average of 1,400 volunteers a year to help the organization run its daily operations. From serving meals to monitoring the computer lab, there is always something going on to lend a hand.
Most volunteers spend 1-2 hours at a time assisting with meals, activities, and other needs — that’s where Catherine Beltran comes in. As the Volunteer Coordinator, she works to organize the tasks and assign the jobs to the volunteers every day. ”
