Volunteering at the Atlantic City Rescue Mission

Board certified in family practice by the American Osteopathic Board of Family Physicians, Vinson DiSanto, DO, currently serves as the medical director at Spectrum Services. Outside of work, Dr. Vinson DiSanto supports the Atlantic City Rescue Mission, which offers food, shelter, and other support services to individuals who are homeless.

The volunteering process at the Atlantic City Rescue Mission is different for groups and individuals. Individuals, who must be at least 18 years of age or accompanied by a chaperone, may register online. The organization’s online volunteer registration process guides individuals through the completion a full application form and background check, and allows them to search for volunteer openings. Individuals then sign up for the desired position before completing a mandatory orientation and beginning their volunteer work.

Groups, on the other hand, must email the organization’s volunteer coordinator. They also must meet certain criteria: volunteer groups must be employee, scout, school field trip, civic, or church groups. Group members under the age of 14 are not eligible to volunteer, and each group needs one adult chaperone for every eight teenage volunteers. When emailing the volunteer coordinator, they should include a group description and their organization’s name, as well as the contact person’s name, title, phone number, and email address. Group volunteer emails should also include the desired volunteer date along with the number of group members.
