Whether it’s through framing a new home, providing childcare during Home Ownership classes, serving a meal at Family Haven or providing administrative help at our offices, volunteers are a crucial part of ICCF’s work in our community. Let’s explore together where your gifts and ICCF’s needs meet!
Administration: Assist with data entry, filing, organization or front-desk coverage.
Childcare: ICCF offers free childcare for parents who are taking financial empowerment classes. Volunteers help by playing with, reading to, and making art with the kids!
Classroom Instruction: Do you expertise in financial management, home maintenance or other home ownership or financial capabilities skills? We would love to talk with you about teaching for ICCF.
Construction: Help prepare homes for renovation through building, light demolition, landscaping, and clean up.
Family Haven: Share your talents with families in our emergency shelter by making a meal, leading a craft or game night for kids, cleaning, or organizing the clothes pantry.
Volunteer Event Team: If you love events and hospitality, ICCF’s event team may be the perfect fit! Help with Summer Concerts, staff meetings, back-to-school events and more.

Sue Spahr, ICCF Volunteer
Sue Spahr has been an active ICCF volunteer for more than five years. She has helped families obtain housing by assisting them with their coursework, supporting them in their efforts to build credit, organizing volunteers during home construction projects, and more. Below are a few of Sue’s thoughts on volunteering with ICCF and its benefits – to both the organization and the volunteer.
ICCF shares my own hopes and dreams for our world: safe, secure, healthy homes. For all people. This organization is a testament to Christ’s love and respect. And that is a great gift.
Favorite ICCF memory?
There have been so many! I get very emotional watching families receive the address to their new home. The hope and joy in their eyes is unmistakable. Last year’s gala event was also very special. So many selfless people support this organization. They humbly give and are evidence of “Love in action.”
To have an impact on the lives of others – for generations to come. And to be faithful, love-filled servant for the Lord. The employees at ICCF don’t feel or act like this is their job. Their hearts are with the mission! And my heart is too.
