Roughly 50% of the homeless population in Houston suffers from a mental health and/or substance abuse issue. We can refer them to facilities to receive free care that won't discharge them to the streets. You would be responsible for visiting areas that have high concentrations of the homeless and asking whether they have a mental health and/or substance abuse problem that they'd like to receive care for and also if they want to get off the streets. We will cover the cost of the bus ride to the facility we refer them to. You will be able to set your own schedule and we will first require that you get certified in psychological first aid. This is a volunteer position, but we will sign off on volunteer and certain community services hours. This is also an intern position. All NAMHSAR employees will be offered a free notarized Advance Healthcare Directive/Living Will/Medical Power of Attorney.
