Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers make a big difference in the lives of our residents.

We welcome your time and talents in helping us revitalize communities in the Greater Richmond region. Better Housing Coalition has partnered with HandsOn Greater Richmond to provide individual and group volunteer opportunities ranging from property beautification to administrative assistance. For more information, please contact Stacie Birchett at 804-644-0546 x117.

Participate in our Annual Backpack Drive!

School supplies, books and clothing can really add up. For instance, we calculated that a backpack full of the school supplies required by our public school system can easily run more than $100. For families with low-to-moderate incomes like many of those living in a Better Housing Coalition rental community, meeting daily expenses is already a challenge; and the added costs of back-to-school preparedness puts added pressure on a tightly stretched budget.

This year we have a goal of 150 fully stocked bags for the youth who are participating in our on-site programming.

This activity is perfect for groups and individuals, and it can be completed at your leisure (so long as it’s before July 13th).

For more information, and to express interest, see our posting on HandsOn Greater Richmond’s website.
