CareTeams are groups of 4-7 volunteers who provide practical and emotional support to a person or household affected by the loneliness and isolation of HIV/AIDS and/or addiction. CareTeam members build supportive relationships with those we serve through:
· Listening nonjudgmentally · Sharing coffee or a meal · Giving a ride to the doctor · Visiting when sick · Celebrating special occasions
Training topics include:
· HIV/AIDS 101 · Grief and loss · Active listening · Mental health · Addiction and recovery · Working with stigmatized populations
Volunteers agree to a commitment of a minimum of 3 hours per month for one year.
The next Rosehedge Multifaith Works CareTeam training is Saturday, October 27th from 8:45am to 5pm at 1401 E. Jefferson.
