Volunteering Group

Help Change Lives

As a non-profit organization, we rely on the generous support of donors, volunteers, and our community. 


When you donate your time to United Housing Connections, whether at a one-time event or through ongoing volunteer opportunities, you’re helping to change lives. Thanks to your contributions, we’ll make the Upstate a better place for everyone to live.


Learn how you can get involved below.

Volunteer Opportunities

Planned Meal Partnership

Help foster a sense of community and belonging when you host a monthly meal. Adopt a group of residents and provide a meal once a month, host a holiday, or even an annual summer BBQ.

Beautification Projects

When you lend your time and skills to meaningful beautification projects in the community, you help transform a house into a home. Projects include painting, landscaping, remodeling, and more depending on group size and experience.

Donation Drives

Fill homes, fill hearts. Organize a donation drive to supply new residents with important essentials from clothes and cleaning supplies to furniture, toiletries, kitchen supplies, and more. Not sure where to start? We’ll share tips to make your drive a success.

Contact for more information on how you or your group can volunteer your time.

Event Opportunities

Lend your time at one of our annual special events and experience the power of community, support, and celebration firsthand. Opportunities to get involved include event setup, assisting with planning and registration, cleanup, and more.
