Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
We support strong neighborhoods, authentic engagement, and community problem-solving.
The City of Gresham's Office of Neighborhoods and Community Engagement (ONCE) offers a one-stop shopping approach to creating a strong sense of community in Gresham, using our neighborhoods as the building blocks for engaging our community. ONCE also provides assistance to all City departments on outreach and engagement efforts.
Neighborhood Associations offer a great way to get to know your neighbors while working to improve your community. ONCE provides coordination and assistance to our Neighborhood Associations as well as the Neighborhood Coalition, which is made up of representatives from each local association.
ONCE includes East Metro Mediation services, which provides neutral mediators to help resolve problems involving neighbors, housing, business-customer disputes, and workplace issues. The program also offers workshops and training in conflict resolution.
ONCE serves as the volunteer center for the City of Gresham, offering volunteer matching and coordination for our City. Every year hundreds of residents give their expertise and time as a volunteer through the City's volunteer program.
