Volunteer

We offer our volunteers three opportunities to serve the community.

Home Safe

Ensuring safe and accessible homes in the community.

Home Safe volunteers do light construction projects.

This includes installation of battery operated smoke detectors, CO2 detectors, grab bars, switching door knobs for levers, upgrading lighting with LEDs in and outside the homes of the elderly and disabled. These volunteers ensure homes are safe and accessible.

  • 20-40 homes during the repair season (spring to early fall)

  • Groups of at least 2-3 volunteers

  • Small hand tools and materials provided

  • Safety training provided

Home Preservation Team (HPT)

Repairing homes for our neighbors in need.

HPT Volunteers do moderate construction projects.

Most of our HPT volunteers have some basic to advanced level of construction skills. These volunteers complete immediate and emergency home repairs for the elderly, disabled, veteran, and very low income homeowners.

Examples of repairs include installing new flooring, replacing windows, building a ramp, updating lighting, and updating bathrooms. These projects often run like a construction site, where a skilled volunteer site manager lead a team to complete the project.

  • 5-8 homes during the repair season (spring to early fall)

  • Groups of at least 5-7 volunteers — normally a 1-2 week project

  • Materials and tools provided — you are welcome to bring your own tools

  • Safety training provided

Brunswick Summer Blitz

Who's on your service team?

The Blitz is a special event for Mission and Faith-Based Groups that want to work in the community. Each group is assigned a 3-4 day project based on the groups' assessed skills.

These projects are completed during the summer by volunteers of all kinds — some are groups from regional organizations and others are families looking to volunteer together. Each group must include at least 1 volunteer with advanced construction level skills.

  • # of homes depends on the # of teams (usually from June to August)

  • Teams of at least 5-7 — groups can be as large as 100

  • Materials and tools provided — you are welcome to bring your own tools

  • Safety training provided
