Volunteer Opportunities

The volunteers who have been continuously involved with Hacienda have made our work that much more meaningful. We are grateful to all of those who have become part of our community with their work in activities ranging from homework assistance and youth empowerment, to neighborhood cleanups and event planning.

Interested in connecting with your community? You can get involved and support our Comunidad Viva by becoming a Hacienda volunteer. Whether it is one day or a longer commitment, we thank you for participation in our community. If you are a new volunteer, please fill out our Volunteer Interest Form and someone will be in touch with you soon to talk about how you can get involved.
