During these uncertain times, how can we help?
See below to access our COVID-19 Resource Hub, and to explore our growing directory of both COVID-19-specific and virtual volunteering opportunities.
National - Gladly Serving U.S. Private Home Residents Since 2009 - Exclusive Consumer Information Service
(Opportunity Inquiries : 10 AM- 4 PM - Mon-Fri) "It's not a 'job.' It's a 'personal activity'."
If we live in private homes, there are occasions when we require assistance from individuals in the building trades to make repairs and improvements. Whether we pay the bills or they are paid by other members of our household, it affects everyone. Community-wise, the same is true in each home.
This is an opportunity for us to do our part volunteering online against home fraud to the benefit of those who live in the private home sector of our country. Living in a private home may not necessarily exempt us from addressing also the pressing need for being better informed to protect ourselves from dishonest tradespersonnel. Is this worth volunteering for? Yes.
*This Opportunity Strictly online.
Aside from being 18 years of age or over; a U.S. Citizen who resides here, and computer literate:
Although there are quite a few other suggested assignments available, HGRBS present priority is the "SERVICE BOOKLET." This exclusive free booklet, available online, contains essential hyperlinks to various sources of public information about contractors and provides special tips for safer decision-making. The free Service Booklet is designed to help residents make wiser decisions about contractors hired.
*In the U.S. home improvement fraud is rampant among the Top 10 Consumer Complaints, annually. Each year, it comprises 8 or 9 of the items in that list [Consumer Federation Of America]. This means that it is a very huge issue. The reason is that we are not informed enough against it. You can help close this gap by inspecting hyperlinks for inactive/dead links in this crucial informational source and reporting these to HGRBS for repair. This goes a long way towards helping other residents access essential information which may have been needed in the hiring decision. [There are easy-to-for tips for doing this].
*After 30 days, "Certificates of Appreciation"are sent via email to volunteers who successfully complete a minimum 10 separate inspections of different Service Booklets or other special free documents residents will benefit from.You could be one of the recipients. Does this sound like something you are comfortable doing?
If this social opportunity is suitable for you, please feel completely free to connect with Special Assignments for more details via Volunteermatch clearance. This helps HGRBS recognize your email as meeting its basic volunteer screening requirements.
THANK YOU FOR STEPPING FORWARD!
