Referral Sites

In addition to our official PDA Host Sites, you and your volunteer team may consider staying at one of our referral sites. Referral Hosting occurs when PDA becomes aware of a volunteer opportunity where there is both a work partner and housing available. This information is then posted on the PDA website so that volunteers may contact the organization directly. This type of hosting is not managed by the PDA Call Center or PDA.
