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 Volunteers:Registration for general volunteers will open in August. Please check back then.
Medical and Dental Volunteers:These directions are for healthcare workers with a license from a state licensing board (such as the state board of nursing or medicine). Additionally, we will be registering non-licensed medical and dental section volunteers in SERV-OR to track all medical/dental team volunteers in a single system. This is mainly for registration personnel.
You must register by August 27, so that everyone’s registration has time to be processed. To sign up as a medical/dental professional, please follow the directions below:
Step 1: Register with the State Emergency Registry of Volunteers in Oregon (SERV-OR) by going to www.SERV-OR.org. You will need to provide your name, contact information, and healthcare provider license information. You must have an active, unencumbered license.
When registering, you should click “yes” to the question about joining the State Managed Volunteer Pool. If you live in Deschutes County, you can also click “yes” to join a Medical Reserve Corps unit and choose “Deschutes County Public Health Reserve Corps.” If you have any questions during this process, please email DeWayne Hatcher, firstname.lastname@example.org
Step 2: Once approved, or if you are already registered with SERV-OR, sign in at www.SERV-OR.org, click on Missions, and list yourself as “Available” for the Project Connect, Redmond, Sept 13, 2014 event.
Step 3: Finally, email Tiffany Stafford at email@example.com to let her know that you have registered for Project Connect's medical/dental team.
