A voluntary services approach has become an increasingly popular mechanism for providers to serve vulnerable families and youth. This workshop will demonstrate how providers are successfully implementing a voluntary service model and examine the benefits of this approach. Presenters will also explore how this model is being used to provide home-based services for a rapid re-housing intervention.
