Administrative

Office volunteers are always needed to help the staff to complete our mission. Volunteers assist us with day to day clerical duties, such as answering phones and making calls, data entry, graphic design, research, specialized projects and much more!

Volunteer opportunities are available at our office Monday through Friday from 9am to 5pm. 

Home Repair

We partner with volunteers, donors and communities to help repair existing homes for homeowners in need. Projects include painting, external repair work, building or repairing porches/ramps, landscaping, neighborhood clean-up, beautification, and many more tasks. Home Repair volunteers are needed on weekdays.
