GCHA Sponsorship and Volunteer Opportunities

Resident Assistance Program

Monetary monthly donations help with the needs of residents.† Donation amount varies depending on sponsor. †All requests for resident assistance are verified by staff and reviewed by an independent board of 3 community members (non-staff) appointed by the Grundy County Housing Authority Board of Commissioners. †The Resident Advisory Assistance Board makes final determinations regarding the amounts and types of resident assistance provided.

Home Maker Program

Financial support and volunteers to rehab vacant apartments, preparing them for new residents, is vital. We find that between 3 - 5 people a couple hours a night can pretty quickly get the apartment ready for the new tenant. We can supply all paint and cleaning supplies, or financial support for the purchase of these materials is also greatly appreciated.

After the apartment is complete - we will place a plaque in our main entrance way with your 'team' name for all to see! This is a great project for families or businesses.

$500-$1000 per apartment average cost.
