Street Outreach Services


The SS Helene K. Carter



This voyage can take as little as 1 to 2 hours of your time - travel included. 

This is an exciting time.

Immediate volunteer openings involving direct contact with clients, helping them with their immediate needs.  Seeing poverty and helping people in need, eyeball to eyeball.

Through a generous donation left to SHIP in the will of Helene K. Carter, a former SHIP Drop-in-Center volunteer, we secured a vehicle that serves as our Street Outreach Service mobile unit.

SHIP brings even more of its services to the streets. Street Out reach Services, (SOS), and is plotting a course into the community with our SOS vehicle.

The vehicle is involved at different identified communities throughout the county providing the following and more.

SHIP is in need of volunteers to drive the RV and donations to help fund a part-time operator/director.

If you are interested in donating or volunteering, please call Tom at (908) 725 3260
