Do you have a few extra hours each month? Looking for a way to give back? The city’s Neighborhood Services Department is in need of residents to donate time or financial resources with its Volunteer Assistance Program.

Volunteers benefit by building connections with new residents and from the pride of knowing they are keeping Phoenix communities safe. Residents may seek help from the Volunteer Assistance Program if they have code violations and are not able to bring the violation into compliance due to financial or physical reasons. These cases are referred to the program by a city inspector; currently there are 25 cases that need volunteer assistance.

Groups, churches or companies interested in volunteering time, sponsoring the removal of dead trees or donating in-kind services for tree removal, landscaping and yard maintenance should contact Volunteer Assistance Coordinator Lee Staten at 602-495-0564 or
