Neighborhood & Volunteer Services


Here in the Community Services Department, we offer the following Neighborhood & Volunteer Services:
  • Volunteer Opportunities: The Community Services Department processes volunteer applications citywide. Start your civic service by submitting a City of Richmond volunteer application, and we'll help place you in one of the City's departments.
    • Love Your Block: Richmond Love Your Block is a volunteer-based community beautification program that helps resident leaders revitalize and beautify Richmond one block at a time.
  • Richmond Tool Library: A free service that lends tools to Richmond residents with the goal of providing opportunities to be self-sufficient, to take agency over their neighborhoods, and to work towards a more sustainable Richmond, California.
