About

As a volunteer with LINC you will assist in fulfilling a great need for affordable homes and life-enhancing services to those most vulnerable in our state. Did you know that in California a single worker making minimum wage would have to work over 130 hours per week to afford the average priced two-bedroom apartment for his or her family? Even with two incomes, one can see the challenges that an individual would have working 65 hours per week and still find time to raise a family, care for aging relatives, and contribute in a positive way to their neighborhoods. By joining our team volunteers support the mission of LINC Housing to provide low-cost homes and social services to families, seniors and individuals with disabilities.
