Volunteers Opportunities





Both individuals and groups may serve as HOC volunteers. Our volunteers play a significant role in helping us increase and expand services to customers, as well as support administrative, technical and clerical functions for HOC staff.

Many of our volunteers serve as advocates, helping to increase community understanding and cooperation around affordable housing in the county and the many services HOC provides. Volunteers are an important part of our team and are deeply integrated in our work. As a result, we interview and screen all individuals interested in serving as volunteers prior to placement.
