Host a Corpsmember!

Support SCC members during their term of service while helping to build community and protect our public lands!

During the field season of 2023, Southwest Conservation Corps ran a successful host housing pilot program, connecting 6 members in host housing during their season. We are excited to build on that program going into 2024! We are currently seeking hosts within 1 hour of Hesperus, CO, with the highest need currently in Durango. The local support of our communities has been critical in helping our seasonal staff find affordable housing. If you are interested in supporting public lands and our local community, fill out the interest form below to get involved!

Why host a corpsmember?

Benefit to the Member Benefit to the Host
Place to recover during their off time. Invitation to SCC Events.
Safe space to store their belongings. Connect to a young adult who is serving the local community.
Stronger sense of belonging in the community. Play a vital role in helping to protect our public lands.
Reduced barriers to participation. Tax benefits for hosts who donate a space.
Up to 400$ per month, depending on accommodations.

As housing and rental prices continue to rise, it is becoming more challenging for our corpsmembers to secure stable living conditions throughout their terms. During the 2022 season, nearly 60% of our corpsmembers lived out of their cars or camped during their off days. While some of our corpsmembers prefer this lifestyle, having the option of stable housing for those who want it will help improve both member experience and retention rates.
