Volunteer at AFH

Throughout the year we have many volunteer opportunities.  We appreciate our volunteers and hope that you would like to join our group of volunteers.

There are many ways in which you can help, and nobody is too young or too old. The homeless have many needs, and they can only be solved if we work together. Here are some of the ways you can help and make a difference in someone life.

Children's Activities

Looking to make a difference in the life of a child? Help our parents as they attend workshops and seminars by watching after their children. American Family Housing has made this a time for children to learn manners, receive help on homework, and participate in creative activities like art, reading and games. Your help is needed. For more information, call 714-897-3221 and ask for our Children's Program Coordinator. 

Office Support

Our corporate office is always busy with many projects and can use a variety of help to complete tasks. Assistance ranges from basic office tasks such as typing, filing, monthly mailers, stuffing envelopes, data entry, or organizing files, just to name a few. Call 714-897-3221 and ask for our Volunteer Coordinator.

Group Activities

We are looking for groups, sororities and companies from the community to help coordinate and organize on-going projects and fundraisers. Groups can be as big as 20 to one Girl Scout or Boy Scout working for a badge. The items we need your help with include: Food drives, Baby Diaper drives (sizes 4 and 5), Personal Hygiene drives, Towel and Washcloth drives. Projects to help improve our Shelter properties for our clients include: Spring-cleaning of properties and making picnic tables and toy boxes.
