OCH is looking for volunteer groups to take part in our painting projects. Painting projects can be full day or half day activities. Your group will meet up at one of our communities across Ottawa and work together to paint spaces including hallways, lounges and lobbies. We make it easy for you as we provide all the painting material and supplies. We encourage all individuals to volunteer, whether you have experience with painting or you are a beginner. We will also provide you with food and drinks during the event!

Our painting projects deliver instant results to our communities, which OCH tenants are so grateful for. Everyone deserves to live in a space that is vibrant, clean, and well-kept and your group will help make this difference!

Please note, our painting projects take place September – May. If you are interested in summer projects, please take a look at our other opportunities.

How will this opportunity benefit the volunteer?
Volunteering with OCH will help your team provide a sense of purpose and community. Your team will get to see first-hand the realities of social housing and the work that needs to be done. In addition to feeling a sense of purpose, our volunteer events are great activities for team building while contributing to a great cause.
How will the organization benefit?
Due to the pressure of capital repairs, many beautification projects would not be possible without the help of volunteers.
