Caring Choices is the  Emergency Volunteer Center for Northern California.

In periods of disaster, Caring Choices works with its public and private community partner agencies deploying volunteers to other agencies. In addition, volunteers assist the center with communications, donation management, tracking resources, and general administration.

Volunteering is a valuable part of every healthy community. Volunteers come from all segments of society and often provide essential services. Everyone has the potential to contribute strength and resources in times of emergency. There are valuable and appropriate roles for unaffiliated spontaneous volunteers in mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery.

Habitat for Humanity Construction Site

Join our construction volunteers on Thursdays, Fridays, or Saturdays to work in all aspects of home construction as part of a team. The day begins with sign-in at 8 a.m. and typically ends around 3:00 p.m. Don’t worry if you’re inexperienced. Our work sites are supervised by skilled Habitat construction staff members who are on hand to give you instructions and assistance. You’ll work side-by-side with the family whose home you are helping to build and will be amazed at how much you’ll learn in a single day! We are finishing up two homes on 20th Street and starting six homes on Mulberry Street.
