One of our greatest strengths is the constant support of dedicated volunteers.  Volunteers bring new skills and knowledge to our work, and provide positive support to our participants as they transition out of homelessness. We have passionate people volunteering in myriad ways — from serving meals at our Bridge Housing to helping connect people to services at our Connect Days, to cleaning up the community.
