Maintenance/Repairs Teams

Volunteers provide pre-occupancy prep, routine repairs, and maintenance of apartments including painting, cleaning, and minor repairs.


Children’s Program

Volunteers care for children of both families and volunteers during the weekly sessions working with a TCP Children’s Program Coordinator to help children find stability and self-esteem as they go through the transition from homelessness.


Meal Providers

Volunteers organize a team from a church, social, or civic group to prepare and serve meals to TCP families and volunteers at the weekly sessions. This is needed at the beginning of the year, to fill the annual calendar.
