We are confident there is something here for you.

COVER’s Home Repair programs rely on volunteers in order to complete our scheduled projects that have met our project criteria and have been through a COVER site visit. We typically engage over 300 volunteers annually. When volunteering on Home Repair and Weatherization projects we offer you an opportunity to learn from skilled Work Leaders, or to share the skills you already have, engaging in meaningful work that will make a difference in someone’s everyday life. If you are a skilled trades person and would like to offer your volunteer time specifically with those skills (electrician, plumber, skilled carpenter), please let us know.
Assist in our Cover Office: Seeking a volunteer to come anytime Tues, Weds, Thurs, or Fridays between 9am-5pm for miscellaneous projects, from designing and printing posters and promotional material, to data entry and organizing files.
COVER Store Store Hours: Monday- Saturday, 10-5 / Sunday 12-5
Store Manager will work with you to schedule your availability.
Especially seeking volunteers who can commit to a weekly shift.
Imagine that in order to make your house warm, safe and dry you accepted a group of strangers from different walks of life into your home. We reflect on what that might feel like, and how we’d wish those strangers would act in our homes. We keep that in mind as we spend time in homeowners’ spaces.
We build community by approaching each other with respect and empathy. We appreciate your help and we hope you are excited to get to know your neighbors. It may have taken a lot of courage to step forward and ask for help. We thank the homeowners for inviting us into their homes.
