Whether it’s through framing a new home, serving a meal at Family Haven or providing administrative help at our offices, volunteers are a crucial part of ICCF Community Homes’ work in our community. Let’s explore together where your gifts and ICCF’s needs meet!
Administration: Assist with mailings, database entry, filing, organization and event preparation.
Classroom Host: Welcome participants of ICCF education classes, help at the registration table, prepare and serve snacks and coffee, and create certificates of completion at the end of class.
Construction: Help renovate ICCF homes through demolition, painting, carpentry work, landscaping, and clean up.
Family Haven, Emergency Shelter: Sort and organize incoming donations, make and serve a meal, lead a craft or game night for kids, or help with outdoor projects.

Jim Hayward, Fall 2019 Impact of You Highlight
When Jim comes into our offices to volunteer once a week, he doesn’t make a big splash. That’s how he prefers to work – quietly, diligently, making a difference. Since 2010, Jim has been volunteering about 2 hours each week for the Housing & Family Services team.
“I appreciate that ICCF is works with people in all different stages of housing needs and meets them where they’re at,” says Jim. He has the important job of entering survey results from our financial education classes, which allows our team to review the impact and make refinements to the way our programs are run. This, in turn, results in a greater impact and more empowerment for our community.
“Over the past year and a half, I have had the privilege of working with Jim,” says Volunteer & Stewardship Coordinator Katie Brower. “Jim’s work has a large impact at ICCF. It frees up time for our HFS educators to work with clients and helps ICCF to implement a model of continuous improvement in our education classes. Jim’s commitment to ICCF through weekly volunteering is a huge gift and we are so grateful!”
