Current Volunteer Needs

HIP is currently seeking one-time and occasional volunteers who have an interest in affordable housing and community development. You can assist staff with community fairs, special event preparation, videography and photography, or overall administrative support in our offices in Hyattsville, Germantown or Gaithersburg.

Event Staff Volunteer – Year-round

  • Help out the day before, and/or the day of a HIP event, community festival, or homebuyer education workshop. There are many details to accomplish, including making phone calls to confirm attendance, printing name tags and lists, managing the registration and info tables, transporting supplies, carrying equipment, and setting up/cleaning up the venue, etc.
  • We have a particular need for experienced photography and videography assistants to help with upcoming preparations for events and publications in April and May 2020.

Office/Administrative Volunteer – Fall

  • Help staff with planned mass mailings that require proofing, printing/sorting, envelope stuffing/stamping, as well as some filing and organizing during November and December.

Client testimonials – Year-round

  • Have you been helped by HIP’s counseling or real estate development staff? Would you be willing to share your rental or home ownership story on how your life has been impacted by HIP’s services, or a volunteer experience? We’d love to hear your feedback and potentially use your testimonial on the HIP website, in a video, or in marketing brochures and other materials.
