Volunteer with NSD

The NSD Volunteer Network works to meet community needs by harnessing the power of volunteers and community partners.  From training Blight Buster volunteers to remove graffiti, to helping residents in need through our Volunteer Assistance Program - we do it all in an effort to reduce blight and improve the Phoenix community.  

We invite you to take action in your community!  Take a look at our programs below to learn how you can become a volunteer or partner with NSD.   

Volunteer Assistance Program
Do you have a few extra hours each month and are 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, faith-based organizations or companies interested in volunteering their time, sponsoring the removal of dead trees or donating in-kind services for tree removal, landscaping and yard maintenance are encouraged to contact Volunteer Assistance Coordinator Lee Staten at 602-495-0564 or lee.staten@phoenix.gov.
