Here's How to Get Involved

We are now accepting court-ordered and lawyer-recommended volunteers who need community service hours for traffic violations.

Please email to schedule your intake if you need community service hours.

Letters will not be provided to those individuals who did not complete an intake prior to completing hours.

Construction Volunteer Orientation
Please note you will need to attend an in person orientation before registering to volunteer in construction.

Group leaders should also attend an orientation, however we recognize that this may not be possible for everyone. Please email for alternative to an in person group leader orientation. 

Previous construction volunteers should take orientation as well, but we can waive this requirement on a case by case basis. Please email us at the email above for more information and include your full name so we can determine if we can waive orientation. 


Orientations will take place the the 1st Wednesday evening and the 3rd Saturday morning of every month.
