Donation Center Volunteers!

We are in need of self-motivated Donation Center volunteers to assist in making houses homes! The Donation Center is our sorting hub of all donations that come to Partners in Housing, and this is where we make the decision whether to put items out for families to shop or to pass them along to other organizations that are in need. All items donated from the community are given to Partner Families (families in the Partners in Housing program) at no cost. 

Partners in Housing is a non-profit that provides transitional housing to families experiencing homelessness in Colorado Springs. Throughout their year in the program, families will have access to self sufficiency classes, job readiness programs, budget counceling, child support, and more. After entering the Partners in Housing program, 90% of families find stable housing. When you volunteer in the Donation Center, you are giving mothers in the Colorado Springs community a chance to rebuild their home and work towards stability, self-reliance, and prosperity.
