Volunteer Opportunities (July-August)

Join us for Summer Volunteering at CRC! 

Please email Sara Rosenbaum, Volunteer Manager, if you would like to sign up or be considered for any of the following volunteer opportunities: 

 

GROUP OPPORTUNITIES

On-call Paint Team

We are looking for a group willing to be “on-call” to paint our transitional housing when families move out. This includes both domestic violence program participants as well as families that are in need of temporary housing until they can move into something permanent, as they work towards self-sufficiency. Because of the sensitive nature and location of the housing, we are looking for just one group if possible to be available when a need arises – this could be 1-4 times a year, with just one month notice.

Requirements: Signed Volunteer Waiver and Confidentiality Agreement, closed toed shoes and attention to detail.   Ideally we are looking for an ongoing commitment and donation of paint supplies as well.
