Group Leaders

  • Fill out our Group registration form.
  • We will confirm the date and get your group on the calendar.
  • A staff member from Urban Homeworks can speak to your group to provide more information, fire up and recruit people and answer questions.
  • Please send all individual waiver forms and the requested donation 2-3 weeks prior to your volunteer date. If numbers aren’t finalized at that point, have individuals print and fill out the waiver form before arriving on-site so you can start working right away!
  • You will be contacted 1-2 weeks in advance with the details of your day.

Welcome Baskets

Volunteer without even swinging a hammer! Fill this need anywhere, anytime, from anyplace! Engage your kids, youth group, or office by putting together a Welcome Basket that current residents can use as tools to welcome new neighbors.

Every year, we welcome home at least 60 families, and their journeys warrant a celebration. By putting together baskets, you’re not just providing cleaning products for our residents; you’re playing an integral role in their stability and our community building efforts. We are always in need of baskets. Learn more here, or contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to get started!
