The Quicksilver Crew provides opportunities to volunteer during the week on an Urban Homeworks construction site, turning dilapidated structures into quality, dignified homes.
Who We Are
The Quicksilver Crew is a group of individuals (mostly retired professionals) who have chosen to use the freedom of their schedules for the benefit of families seeking stability. This group engages in hands-on work and in conversation that leads to deeper understanding of poverty in the urban context.
What We Do
Spending anywhere from a half-day to two days each week volunteering on an Urban Homeworks construction site, Quicksilvers do everything from rough framing to putting the finishing touches on a home. Some Quicksilvers have construction skills, some learn on the job, but all are passionate about this work and enjoy the camaraderie of working and learning together.
