This fall our popular Sewing Club is returning to Skyline Tower in a smaller drop in model (1 or 2 attendees at a time). We are looking for additional sewing instructor volunteers to led these drop in sewing classes!
Sewing Club attendees are eager to learn, have the materials and sewing machines ready, but just need an instructor. By joining the club as a class instructor you will be able to share your expertise and love of sewing with others.

Celebration of Home is CommonBond Communities largest fundraiser. Guided by a steering committee, this event brings together hundreds of people each fall to celebrate the impact of the organization and raise money for its mission of providing supportive housing in a 4 state area.
The event needs a number of volunteers willing to approach local businesses, clubs and organizations for donated items to the silent auction, one of the main components of the event. The auction is held during the event and generally raises around $25,000 to support the vital programs of CommonBond Communities.
These volunteers work independently to approach places they frequent or have knowledge to help secure donated items. Donating gift cards, merchandise, or services is greatly appreciated. There is no minimum value gift amount.
For over 50 years, CommonBond has helped create affordable housing communities with on-site supportive services throughout the Midwest. Our organization works to create stability within vulnerable communities of Minneapolis, Iowa and Wisconsin. One of the ways we work to build long-term stability is ensuring kids have the support they need to succeed in school and beyond, through in-person and online youth tutoring, homework centers, and more.
Here are just some of the ways our volunteers make a difference within our communities:
UPDATE: All of our volunteer opportunities for the 2020-2021 school year are currently full. We will have a great need for volunteers this fall both virtual and in-person.
If you’re interested in helping our communities but are not able to offer your time volunteering, support CommonBond and donate today!
Volunteer board members have approved financial audits that help nearly 13,000 maintain stable, affordable homes throughout the Midwest.
Community Advisory Boards advance the goal of creating affordable housing for all. Through a simple annual meeting to review and approve a financial audit of the property, each volunteer board member supports the residents who call CommonBond home, as well as the greater community.
Each annual meeting is typically scheduled during weekday business hours and usually takes 30 – 60 minutes. There are multiple locations throughout the Minneapolis, Iowa and Milwaukee area.
Making a meaningful change in your community can start with a small act of kindness. In 2020, we had 245 individuals invest their time to help children and adults living in CommonBond communities. These volunteer efforts helped residents learn new skills, stay on top of their studies, and achieve personal goals throughout a deeply challenging year.
