Description

Operation Safety Net (OSN) is Pittsburgh Mercy’s award-winning medical and social service program for the unsheltered homeless population in Allegheny County. Operation Safety Net strives to address the circumstances that undermine the mental and physical health of persons served by creating avenues for homeless people to access the social and health services that are necessary to improve their quality of life. Two volunteers are needed within OSN: an outreach specialist and community health nurse. Volunteers will assist and support individuals experiencing homelessness or who are near homelessness in identifying and being connected to a wide variety of resources and supports, including healthcare, public benefits, housing, mental health treatment, drug and alcohol treatment, and vocational and educational resources.
