Help families and transform lives.

Housing Up believes that service has the power to transform the lives of our staff members, families and volunteers. We offer a variety of opportunities ranging from one-time activities and in-kind donation drives to weekly opportunities.

To volunteer with us, you must first complete a volunteer training and background check. TrainingsĀ take place once a month at our office and cover the larger issues of homelessness and housing in Washington, DC, as well as the work that Housing Up does, and best practices for volunteering.

Contact Shahidah Abdul-Lateef, Community Engagement Manager, at with any questions or to sign up for a training.
