Be very careful before volunteering at this agency. reStart works on a crisis level at all times. The staff turn over is horrific There are other shelters and homeless programs that are much more client orientated and volunteer friendly. Don't commit until you investigate. I worked there for seven years so I am very aware of all of its aspects.
