Chestnut Housing proactively seeks opportunities to use volunteer labor to build, rehab, and maintain our affordable homes and apartments. Every hour of volunteer labor creates financial savings that we pass on to our residents by helping us keep rent affordable.
Volunteers with Chestnut Housing do a variety of activities ranging from painting and deep cleaning, to demolition and trash removal, to skilled carpentry and repairs. Over our decade-plus program history we have leveraged hundreds of hours of volunteer labor for each property we have preserved. We have a strong track record of creating meaningful and valuable volunteer experiences where each person can see the impact of their work.
