WORKship Project at the Z Mansion

Type: Ongoing volunteering/shadowing


Details: Beginning in our earliest days, WORKship provided first aid and community health services. First with blood pressure clinics for the elderly. Then with basic first aid at a feeding project at a dirt lot on 22nd street. Today, we offer comprehensive all-volunteer first aid services at the Z Mansion every Thursday & Sunday.


In addition, a WORKship spin off, the Community Emergency Medical Responders Foundation, performs first aid street patrols and trains medical providers in the intricacies of homeless health care.


This has all been accomplished through the all-volunteer efforts of our doctors, nurses, pharmacists, audiologists, physical therapists, paramedics, EMTs, EMRs, massage therapists, Reiki healers, Bowen practitioners, and many, many others.

They all recognized that something has to be done. And they -- unhesitatingly --are doing it.
