Calling all volunteers! Home Depot employees are refurbishing a veterans home in Collegeville and need extra volunteers. Volunteers and employees will be will be painting, putting up sheet rock, plumbing and renovating a bathroom and kitchen.
Volunteers will be working 9AM to 4PM each day starting on May 31 and finishing on June 4. Volunteers can work as many days as they would like.
Volunteers with general carpentry skills are needed, however, there will be skilled labor on site that can give direction. Anyone who does NOT have carpentry skills is still needed as all volunteers will be given direction. This is a GREAT opportunity to learn new skills.

Thank you Lowes Heroes for helping the Bush Hills Community!
Each year Lowes Home Improvment Stores complete several service projects throughout the Birmingham Area. This year with HOB’s help, Lowe’s decided to work with elderly residents in the Bush Hills Neighborhood of Ensley. Rodney Geeslin and his team selected one neighborhood resident to receive several home improvements and enhancements. One of the Bush Hills residents received a new deck with a covered roof, a new porch swing and charcoal grill. Rodney and his team also purchased and planted flowers, landscaped and pressure washed her driveway.
This project is one of many ways that HOB and its community partners are working to better our community. You too can make a difference – VOLUNTEER!
Project Homeless Connect Part II
For one day, Project Homeless Connect (PHC) gives people experiencing homelessness the opportunity to access an array of services (housing, medical services, ID services, employment services, haircuts, etc.) in a system which is often difficult to understand and navigate.
This year, PHC will have a part II taking place on Saturday, July 23rd. PHC part II will allow homeless clients who were unable to attend February’s event the opportunity to receive services. PHC part II will also ensure that clients already served are able to continue their journey to bettering their circumstances by receiving additional or follow-up services.
With the partnership of Faith Chapel Christian Center, Hands On Birmingham will continue to provide “Smiling Face Client Guides” to host homeless clients. We are excited to continue engaging our volunteers in social change.
For more opportunities later in the year, please visit our Community Events page. Here are upcoming events:
Are you looking for a meaningful way to impact the community? United Way of Central Alabama's 2-1-1 is looking for volunteers to work in their Call Center.

This is a great opportunity for volunteers to learn about hundreds of social service agencies in the area as well as help families in the Birmingham area.
Shifts are available days and evenings, weekdays and weekends. Training is only offered Monday-Friday 8am-4:30pm.
