Via West is a special needs camp dedicated to serving the children, young adults and families in our community. We are currently closed due to the pandemic, but the property needs some TLC! We have a small, but mighty crew on site who sure could use some helping hands.

Projects include:

  • Building clean up and maintenance
  • Landscape clean up and maintenance
  • Fire hazard reduction (brush clearance)
  • Pool repair and maintenance
  • Repairs, painting, moving
No experience is required, but helpful skill areas would be:

  • tree maintenance
  • landscaping
  • hauling, lifting, painting
Required: for your protection, please wear long pants, long sleeves and sturdy, closed toe shoes.
Recommended: work gloves, eye protection, hat, sunscreen and any tools you think you might like to use on site.

Due to COVID restrictions, please do not visit camp without having talked to us first. Someone will call you to discuss your interest, any experience and your preferred schedule prior to a visit to the site.

Via Services has adopted all COVID-19 guidelines set forth by Santa Clara County of Public Health. Volunteers are required to review a 20-minute COVID-19 safety training prior to starting.
