If you are looking for an opportunity to help people who are
homeless, people with disabilities, and other people with housing needs find
long-term, successful housing, volunteering at Community Housing Network might
be for you!
More than 100 volunteers gave over 3,000 hours of their time and
talents to Community Housing Network last year.
Adopt A Family Program: A large number of volunteers
are needed to find and log in donations, sort and wrap gifts, and/or
deliver holiday packages to formerly homeless families during the holiday
season. Worksites, individuals, schools, civic and faith-based
organizations can help fill wish lists for families or individuals.
They can also help by making a donation of cash or gift cards, new cleaning
supplies and/or personal care products.
Events: Worksites and individuals can become event sponsors or
donate quality auction items or experiences to Raise the Roof for Affordable
Housing, CHN’s signature fundraising event held in the fall.
Volunteers are also needed to serve on the event-planning committees whose
work includes networking for sponsors, procuring auction items, and other
event-related activities leading up to the event.
Community Projects: Teams of volunteers are sought
to assist in the bi-annual homeless street counts and assemble outreach
kits consisting of items such as socks, hygiene items and portable food.
Workshops: Professionals with special knowledge or
skills are sought to give workshop presentations or co-facilitate on homebuyer
education, financial education, and other topics of interest to CHN
staff members and program participants, as well as assisting with logistics of
holding workshops at CHN.
