How to help

Volunteer

Construction continues to be an essential business and we are thrilled to be able to offer volunteer opportunities to help us build affordable homes! There are outdoor volunteering opportunities with Covid safety measures in place. There will be masks, social distancing, and fewer people on site – but the need for affordable homes remains. Thank you for your support, and we look forward to seeing you!

The operation was very organized from beginning to end. They make you feel appreciated. They teach you why your task is important and how it should be done a certain way, mostly to protect yourself. It was a great experience. I learned a lot.

Well-organized and well-supported. It felt safe, both in terms of physical safety and COVID. I felt productive and learned new skills.

– Sharon
