In response to several recent storms, Week of Compassion is working with our partner, CRISIS CLEANUP, to help remotely staff a call center to connect disaster survivors with clean-up assistance.
Volunteers receive calls from survivors through a web-based platform and enter their needs on an interactive map to coordinate volunteer cleanup teams. Volunteers need access to a computer with internet and a phone to receive calls.
Crisis Cleanup does not require volunteers to fill quotas or work predetermined shifts, but the recommendation is for volunteers to aim for 5-8 hours per week. The call center operates 7 days a week, 9am - 8pm Eastern.
Self-paced training is available in English, and in Spanish.
