Dear friends,
On March 31, we closed the books on a very good year thanks, once again, to the incredibly generous investment of time, talent and faithfulness of volunteers of all ages, and in all stages of life whose heart and heft and expertise routinely make 1 + 1 = 6.
This isn't just an amazing numeric return on investment -- impressive as that is. It's sheer heartfelt magic that day in and day out, year in and year out, is changing the odds for families and kids of our community. Volunteers make real community happen.

LaDonna Hoy
Executive Director 

National Volunteer Week is April 15-21

YOU are the reason our neighbors have food on their  tables, job seekers find and keep well-paying jobs,  families have affordable homes, and kids are succeeding  from cradle to career. 

YOU are the reason 2,000 families  feel cared for and can work past their immediate crisis  to experience the joy of better days.

Thank you, volunteers, for finding your irreplaceable role here and helping our community  become the best version of itself.
