Volunteer events

  • Help-A-House Community Work Day is a full day spent improving housing in Goshen.  On the second Saturday in May, volunteers repair the homes of low- to moderate-income homeowners and assist LaCasa in maintaining its affordable rental properties. As many as 350 volunteers in one day repair roofs, windows, garages and porches.
  • Rock the Block is an initiative begun in 2013 to bring neighbors and other interested volunteers together to improve Elkhart neighborhoods. Watch this website for future events.
