Foundation Projects: Volunteer Opportunities in Surrey
At Amazing Tutors Children's Foundation, we create volunteer opportunities in Surrey and environments that foster our students' ability to participate in a caring and giving community. Building connections to community and family, forging bonds of trust, and teaching self-improvement and accountability are the principles we impart in our programs designed to provide leadership training. We encourage our students to reflect on their interactions, to help them understand the value of compassion, empathy, caring, and to use their new awareness to help in the communities they live in.
With Lookout Emergency Aid Society's support, Amazing Tutors Children's Foundation was able to pack one hundred shelter food packs with a juice box, granola bar, seedless and easy to peel Chinese mandarin orange and a mini cake loaf. We then delivered these resources to Gateway Shelter and the Front Room Resource Center in the heart of our Surrey Community. As our Foundation offers volunteer opportunities to develop leadership skills to youth attending our programs, Lookout's leadership and contributions are an excellent example of people working together.
Surrey's Gateway Shelter and the Front Room Resource Center are amazing programs in Lookout Emergency Aid Society's shelter network. They are a charitable organization. These programs offer community services to extremely vulnerable people in less than ideal space. Until Lookout's Boulevard Winter Shelter opened in December 2015, Gateway was the only minimal barrier shelter in Surrey where people can access harm reduction services.
The Gateway Shelter is located at the back building. It is a spacious area with bunk beds for 32 males guests and a separated area of bunk beds for 8 women; each with its own bathroom. Fifty beds are offered through their Extreme Weather Response Shelter in the building adjacent to the Gateway Shelter. Local RCMP and paramedics actively pick up and transfer vulnerable guests to Lookout's Extreme Weather Response, Gateway and Winter Boulevard Shelter Programs. Guests can access the shelter at three call out times - 7pm, 9pm and 11pm. Between those times, guests are asked to remain quiet and respectful to their bunk mates. Every morning they must wake at 6:45 am and leave the shelter by 7am. During the day the shelter remains closed until guests can return. Vacant beds are held for new intakes that are booked by phone or in person. Client storage is an issue as shelter is extremely limited. There is one bin for each bed and locked cupboards for personal storage for each shelter guest. Pet kennels are available outside as well as limited bike and buggy storage.
The Front Room Drop-In is located in the front of the same building with limited space for staff, outreach and a community kitchen. It is the gathering place for shelter guests and community members. The large community space is open 24/7 and serves three daily meals plus two snacks cafeteria style. On any given day, there may be 150-300 people receiving dinner. The one TV is on all day; the only shower and one washer and dryer are available by sign up. The Front Room opens onto an enclosed courtyard with a few benches, tables, potted plants and a covered area for smoking that is open during the day.
Lookout staff manage the building and help fast track individuals to services including social assistance and their medical needs. Located next door is Lookout's health services building with a free medical clinic, low cost dental clinic, harm reduction supplies and a peer-led drop in centre that focuses on people living with HIV/HepC. Staff work closely with Lookout outreach workers who help connect guests with housing and community services. It is a busy place with constant activity. In working with people, Lookout staff teams at Gateway/Front Room, outreach and health service programs have come to know them and, despite many challenges, however, a great rapport exists between staff and client -helping them move forward.
Joe and Sara, two unrelated "regulars," call the Front Room home. After being burned in a fire, Joe has been staying at Gateway since the winter of 2012 -he knows the people and feels comfortable at the Front Room. It offers a safe place with amenities that would otherwise be inaccessible. Diagnosed with several mental health challenges, Sara spends most nights on the street as the shelter feels "too close" but her days are spent at the Front Room. Since coming in 2014, she has helped with outdoor cleanup and others have followed her lead. Sara states that most people "make homeless people feel that they don't even exist" but Lookout's Front Room is "the most friendliest place [she] has been."
