Volunteers make all the difference

Older couple, smiling Thank you for your interest in joining our team of 150 volunteers who dedicate countless hours of service each year to help Imagine Housing provide hope and homes for our low-income neighbors. There are many opportunities to get involved with us and we hope you will find something that matches your interests and passions. Volunteer opportunities include:

Gather a group to help

Many companies and organizations take on property beautification and resident life enhancement projects. We have worked with Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Eagle Scout projects, high school senior projects, university groups, company departments and volunteer professional contractors to name a few.

Many of the opportunities listed below are open to individuals as well as groups.

If you have a group looking for a volunteer project at Andrew’s Glen, please contact Lead Resident Support Supervisor Molly Statham. If you are interested in volunteering at Francis Village, contact Resident Support Specialist Natalie Murry. For information about resident services opportunities, contact Lead Resident Services Coordinator Sarah Larson.

“When I signed up to volunteer, I hoped that I could make at least a small difference in someone’s life. I hadn’t considered that the inverse would be true – that it would make a difference in my life.”
