There is an ongoing need for skilled and unskilled volunteers to do a variety of home repairs, so there are always opportunities for everyone to be involved!
Saturday Work Days
Our general workdays are the 1st Saturdays in Coatesville and in St. Peter's Village; the 2nd Saturdays in Coatesville and Phoenixville. (See schedule.) Typical projects include painting, installing windows, flooring, drywall, and insulation. Individual volunteers are led by Work Crew Leaders and Technical Advisors. To volunteer as an individual, contact Shanna Cornuet by phone at 610-383-9247 or email.
Monday Work Day
There is an additional opportunity for retirees to volunteer on our Monday workdays. We have a great group of volunteers who help to complete home repairs that are needed in between Saturday workdays.
We ask that individuals and groups schedule in advance. If you are interested in volunteering on a general workday or on a Monday Workday, please contact the Volunteer Coordinator by phone at 610-383-9247 or email.
