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 volunteer some of your time, specifically with those skills (electrician, plumber, skilled carpenter), please let us know.
COVER’s Home Repair program relies on volunteers in order to complete our scheduled projects that have met our project criteria . We typically engage over 300 volunteers annually.
Assist our Office staff: 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.
As we enter “mud season” and get ready for Home Repair season, we tackle projects at the COVER Store and Home Repair Headquarters. Let us know if you would like to help!
COVER Store Hours: Monday- Saturday, 10-5 / Sunday 12-5
The COVER store helps provides funding for our Home Repair and Weatherization programs.
When you volunteer in the store, you help to support urgently needed home repairs in your community!
You can volunteer a whole day or just a few hours. The Store Manager will work with you to schedule your availability, but we need volunteers who can commit to a semi-regular weekly shift. Questions? Call (802) 296-7241 ext 3
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.
