Posted on 01. Apr, 2019 by

April is Volunteer Month, and we want to appreciate our amazing volunteers! Thank you for your continued contributions in support of our work. If you follow us on social media or have attended our events, here’s a few ways you can get more involved!

Events

We are always looking for volunteers are our numerous annual events, such as the Crawfish Boil which takes place each April, and our Fit for a King Fair Housing Summit which takes place each January. At events like these, we need volunteers for registration, food, logistics, event preparation, and more! If you’re interested in volunteering at any of our annual events, contact Rachel Mitchell at rmitchell@gnofairhousing.org.

Office Work

In addition to larger events, we are always looking for help around the office with scanning documents, preparing mailings, data entry, and similar projects. If this sounds like something you’d like to help with, please contact Renee Corrigan at rcorrigan@gnofairhousing.org.

Testing

Another way you can get more involved in our work is by becoming a tester. Testers are the mystery shoppers responsible for helping to uncover discrimination by housing providers. Testers are paid for their part-time work and are trained here at GNOFHAC. If you have flexible hours and no prior felony convictions (per HUD’s restrictions), contact Carly Berlin at cberlin@gnofairhousing.org for more information on becoming a tester.

In addition to volunteering, make sure you’re following us on social media, subscribed to our mailing list, and on the look out for upcoming events and ways to get involved in policy work toward fair housing. Thank you!
