OMDR Volunteer Contact Log
The purposes of this log are to:
- Maintain consistent and informed support for the people we serve
- Elevate the autonomy and privacy of the people we serve
- Create accountability for and between volunteers
- Establish broad patterns of the situations faced by the people we serve to direct organizing and action outside

If you have any questions, or if at any point there is something you wish to communicate to the organizers of OMDR which you feel does not neatly fit into these questions, please let us know by emailing

Thank you for your support.
