VOLUNTEER

Albuquerque Heading Home loves volunteers; they are the lifeblood of our initiative.   Opportunities range from sorting clothing and furniture, to assembling care packages to helping deliver furniture to folks moving into housing.  Please call us to find out how you can help.  Below are our current opportunities:  

  • Furniture Donations and Warehouse Management

Help someone exiting homelessness in furnishing their new home. We need strong volunteers who are able to lift 50 lbs. to assist at our warehouse in sorting, organizing and delivering furniture donations.

Thursdays 9-12 or Fridays 1-5

 

Home Teams support neighbors who have recently been housed through the ABQ Heading Home Initiative in the transition to permanent and stable housing. Groups of 3-5 volunteers support one neighbor in getting out of the house and re-engaging with the community. Activities, which are determined by the Home Team and their neighbor, often include visiting parks and museums, celebrating birthdays, and attending medical appointments.

Flexible 1-3 hours per month

 

  • Events & Fundraising Committees

Committee members assist with the planning and execution of events that benefit Heading Home.  Duties range from designing logos and choosing menus to soliciting sponsorships and collecting auction or raffle items. Volunteers may serve year-round or for specific events as they choose.

Committee meetings are initially held monthly and increase in frequency nearer to events

  •  Storytellers

Volunteers who specialize in writing, photography, videography, or fine arts assist in telling the story of our neighbors, volunteers, organization, and staff. Storytelling is vital to maintaining public support for our mission.

Flexible

 

  • Special Skills Volunteers 

Many of our volunteers provide unique services based on their own skill sets. Volunteers may assist with operations by performing administrative tasks, or assisting with website and social media management. Volunteers also serve directly with our neighbors in unique roles to provide services such as career development, acupuncture, live music, and wellness classes.

Flexible
