The goal of Hands on Housing (HoH) is to help homeowners safely remain in the homes and neighborhoods they love.

Every six months, volunteers from area churches work on repairing, painting, and upgrading the homes of elderly and/or disabled people in the Austin Area. This helps the homeowner to maintain the home and stay in the home.

Hands on Housing is sponsored by Interfaith Action of Central Texas (iACT), which supplies paint, tools, supplies and a lunch. Live Oak UU supports this worthy program by providing volunteers twice a year in Spring and Fall  We are partnering with other churches in the Austin area. Volunteers are needed at all skill levels. Chores range from carpentry work, exterior painting, to trimming bushes. There are the options to work in the morning, afternoon, or all day. All volunteers must be sixteen years of age or above.
