Northwest Housing Alternatives has a wide variety of volunteer opportunities available for hardworking and compassionate Oregonians looking to make a difference in their community.

Some volunteering examples include:

  • Providing tutoring and homework club assistance at NHA properties
  • Spearheading a donation drive at your work, school, or church
  • Hosting a benefit event for NHA
  • Volunteering at one of NHA’s fundraising events


One of our biggest volunteer needs is for the Lake Oswego Lake Run. This event is NHA’s spring fundraiser and requires around 100 volunteers! Please check out the Lake Run page for more information. We also need volunteers for our fall fundraiser, Home Sweet Home, in October. Please contact Karin if you are interested in volunteering for Lake Run or Home Sweet Home.

Year-round opportunities include leading exercise classes or tutoring children at an NHA property, providing administrative support to staff, helping with food box deliveries, and supporting special events and fundraisers.

Please reach out to discuss any volunteer ideas you may have!
