Public Health Volunteer Initiative Program (PHVIP)
Volunteers of all skill levels and backgrounds are needed during an emergency response. Clayton County residents can assist in a wide variety of tasks that include data entry, serving meals to shelter residents, or providing medical care. Whether you are a licensed and certified provider, an administrative specialist, a retired professional, or someone who wants to help the community in a disaster, WE NEED YOU!
