Open Table is a proven model that leverages relationships to transform communities. It allows community members to utilize their social and relational resources to help others envision and achieve better outcomes in life.
Open Table recruits and trains volunteers, referred to as Table Members, to build relationships with a family or individual in need, referred to as a Friend. Table Members commit to meeting regularly with their Friend, providing support by helping them develop and implement their own life plan and goals. Table Members tap into their own social networks and knowledge of available community resources in support of that plan. Table members gain appreciation for the challenges experienced by many people in their community, and they get to be a part of the solution.
All volunteers must be 18 years or older.
