Volunteer as a Group

Why Volunteer as a group?

It feels good, builds teamwork, and impacts lives!

 

We make it easy to volunteer as a group. We can accommodate volunteer groups of nearly any size - as few as 10 or as many as 1000 - and will manage the entire process from beginning to end. You help your neighbors and we help you do it.

  • One Day Commitment – Limited commitment is required for most volunteers

  • Hands On Experience – You can see the immediate, positive impact of your work

  • Making a Difference – You see the before and after of your contribution

  • Builds Camaraderie – Corporate groups interact in a different setting and interact with homeowners

Enhances Group Identity – “We did it!”

  • Exposure – Your team helps focus the community on neighbor helping neighbor

  • Community Pride and Revitalization – Your work renews pride in homeownership and encourages neighbors to improve their own homes

  • Understanding – Volunteers gain a better understanding of housing and human needs

Our large group volunteer activities are typically associated with a financial donation* and volunteer from the sponsoring organization. We tailor your project to meet your needs and those of the communities we serve.
