In December 2012, Satellite Housing and Affordable Housing Associates merged to create SAHA, an organization dedicated to providing quality, service-enriched affordable housing to East Bay residents.

About

SAHA will be working to clean and build a new community garden for SAHA’s low income Seniors living in Oakland, CA on March 17, 2017. The garden build begins at 9 a.m. and ends at 1 p.m. Lunch will be provided. Sign up here if you are interested: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090b4daaa82aa5fb6-saha1 or email hplank@sahahomes.org.

SAHA is seeking volunteers to assist with the build. No garden build experience is required. This is a great opportunity if you are interested in growing and supporting a sustainable garden while helping seniors connect and strengthen their community. Volunteers must be able to lift bags of soil, mulch, or other necessary items for the garden.

About SAHA's Volunteer Program

SAHA is a non-profit provider of homes and services to low-income families, seniors, and special needs populations in the Bay Area. Part of our core mission is to foster community and personal enrichment among our residents through programming that addresses a range of needs - professional development, civic engagement, active recreation, creative expression, and more. SAHA’s resident services are greatly enhanced through the work of community volunteers, whom we invite to demonstrate compassion, ingenuity, teaching and leadership skills in expanding the availability of resources for the people we serve.
