What We Do

Community Homeworks empowers our low-income neighbors to maintain safe, sustainable and dignified homes. Our services include critical home repairs, whole-house weatherization, and home repair workshops. We are in need of skilled volunteers with construction, contracting or home-improvement experience to teach workshops, assist with weatherization services and repairs, and build display models for the education program. Volunteers without construction experience are also needed to help keep our office clean and for various other needs as they arise. We cannot accommodate court-ordered volunteers.
