1.  Tax Foreclosure Prevention Project Volunteers

The Tax Foreclosure Prevention Project (TFPP) is looking for dedicated volunteers. Interested candidates may be asked to make phone calls to clients, aid with community events, organize files, and assist with door-to-door canvassing. 

Current Needs:
1. Office Reorganization
Move stuff! We need some people to lend their time to help us move boxes and make space in our office for new desks. Tuesdays and Thursdays are good days to work on this project. 

2. Mailers
Stuff envelopes! We have lots of correspondence going out to our clients.

3. Data Entry
Click and type! If you like looking things up online and entering data in spreadsheets, we have a great task relating to our 520 Right of Refusal homes. We want to give to our new homeowners information about their homes, and we need help pulling that information from online resources into a spreadsheet. You must have great attention to detail!

TFPP Volunteers are expected to attend a Training event. We currently hold Volunteer Trainings events every 3rd Thursday at 1:00 p.m. in our offices. Interested parties must RSVP ahead of time with Meghan Strickland at extension 339 or at mstrickland@uchcdetroit.org. 

We look forward to working with you soon!
