Project Connect, held on Saturday, September 13, 2014, is a one-day event that offers free services to those who are struggling to make ends meet or experiencing homelessness in Central Oregon. Services include medical, dental, clothing, food, veterinary, children's services, financial and legal advice, education, and more. Please visit projectconnectco.org for more information.
General Volunteer Registration:
Project Connect depends on the generous support of over 700 volunteers. Sign up below to join us for this remarkable event that opens hearts and changes lives!
Medical and Dental Volunteer Registration:
Registration for volunteer healthcare professionals at Project Connect is managed through www.SERV-OR.org. SERV-OR is the State Energency Registry of Volunteers in Oregon and is providing liability and volunteer worker protection coverage for licensed providers during the hours of the event. The following registration is for healthcare workers with a license from a state licensing board (such as the state board of nursing or medicine) as well as non-licensed healthcare workers. Please note that this is different than last year.
Volunteers must register before AUGUST 27 to allow time for processing. We are only able to utilize healthcare volunteers that are registered with SERV-OR.
Step 1: Register with the State Emergency Registry of Volunteers in Oregon (SERV-OR) by going to www.SERV-OR.org. (If you are already registered, go to step 2.) You will need to provide your name, contact information and healthcare provider license information. You must have an active, unencumbered license (unless your profession does not require this).
