Why Volunteer with CommonBond?

We believe a home is the foundation for everything in life. At CommonBond, housing is paired with supportive services that provide academic and enrichment programs for youth; and job assistance, health and wellness services, and community engagement opportunities for adults and seniors. This leads to youth who excel in school, adults who find employment and advance in their jobs, and older adults who live independently longer.

In 2023, 222 volunteers engaged through both in-person and virtual volunteer opportunities.

Community Advisory Boards

Help With Community Awareness and Advocacy – Are you looking to learn more about the importance of affordable housing in your community? Do you have experience in finance or board service? Consider joining a Community Advisory Board. 

Community Advisory Board members help to advance the goal of creating and sustaining homes for all. Board meetings are a unique opportunity to connect with CommonBond staff, residents, and other community members to learn firsthand about the successes and challenges our housing communities are facing. 

As a board member, you will review the financial audit for a housing community and attend the annual meeting, typically scheduled between April and June during regular business hours, for a one-hour meeting. We are looking for volunteers with finance or board service experience but anyone with an interest in board service or affordable housing is encouraged to apply. The enrollment process consists of an application and phone interview.
