A Typical Code Blue Evening

The Process:

Sixteen (16) previously scheduled and committed volunteers are required for each evening of the Code Blue Program.



          Volunteers will be needed only if Code Blue is called for that day. 
  •  All volunteers must receive mandatory training so they feel comfortable with the program.
  •   If Code Blue is called, the volunteers will be notified by email and phone.
  •  Volunteers arrive at the Code Blue Site at the scheduled time for their position.
  •  Each site will have a Site Coordinator.
  •  Evening Drivers and Driver Attendants pick up keys and proceed to each of  pick up points driving the AHTN bus "Delilah".  Homeless guests interested in a warm bed for the night will be picked up at designated pick up points.
          Note: Drivers will be contacted by the Transportation Coordinator so driving records may be checked and approved in advance.
  •  Volunteer staff at Code Blue site set up cots and prepare for guests.
  •  Intake Staff will welcome the guests and assist with intake paperwork, hand out bedding, and direct guests to the meal and sleeping area.
  •  Site Coordinator or delegates will indicate location of bathroom facilities and areas open to the guests.
  •  Overnight Staff is on site and will assist with making the guests feel safe and comfortable.
  •  Meal Staff will prepare and serve a light evening meal.  Volunteers may eat and socialize with the guests and other volunteers if they wish.
  •  Lights out at 11 p.m.
  •  Guests will be woken up at 6 a.m, to pack up the bedding, clean up the area used, retrieve their belongings and have a light breakfast prior to boarding the bus by 6:30 a.m.
  •  The Morning Drivers and Driver Attendants will take the guests to the points where they were picked up the evening before.
