HFHWC partners with families, organizations and businesses to build community impact by improving housing conditions in Washington County, MD – whether building a new house, rehabbing an existing home or providing repair assistance with low income homeowner on their current house. . Our affiliate hosts over 500 volunteers annually. We have more than 75 homes built, renovated, or repaired and most importantly,have served more than 75 partner families. Volunteers provide the hearts, hands, and voices to complete our ambitious build schedule. 

The Volunteer Services Coordinator (VSC) will perform three main functions. First, the VSC will ensure there are enough volunteers and supervisors (crew leaders) for each build day. The VSC would help recruit crew leaders, manage their onsite training schedule, and track their service. Second, he or she would help grow the individual and company volunteers using our volunteer database. The VSC will collect detailed information on who is and who is not volunteering. This data is useful for applying for additional grants as well as informing us if we do well, what can be improved and what is no longer effective. The VSC will help HFHWC to effectively train and recognize volunteers and to reach out to those who are not volunteering. These tasks would be managed using our volunteer database. Third, the VSC will be one of the front line faces to advance HFHWC partnerships with the faith community, women build, youth and young adults.
