Something for everyone!
We always welcome new volunteers to our agency and our programs. Some volunteers have been volunteering with us regularly every week since 1989, while others may volunteer at one or two fund raising events per year. We do our best to accommodate your interests, skills and schedule. Volunteers can help with many things at Project Transitions:
We are in need of a volunteer to help with our monthly newsletter. This would be wonderful for a journalism major who is looking for experience.
An individual with marketing or donor relations experience to help with implementing our individual donor program.
Gardeners and landscapers are needed at our facilities to keep them an inviting place for our tenants. Introduce a monthly service project to your family, scout troop, youth group, circle of friends, etc. There are one-time and ongoing opportunities to fit your schedule.
We are in need of handymen and suppliers to aid in our quest to keep our properties in good repair. Some items we are in need of are new cabinetry, bathtubs, and appliances. We also are in need of the linoleum tile floors being buffed and refinished. If you are a handyman or have access to construction and building materials to donate, we'd love to hear from you.
Database and Website Administrator is needed to keep our database current and our website updated.
Volunteer groups (churches, civic groups, etc.) who would like to help with apartment make-readies when we turn over a unit to a new tenant.
