Special Events and Fundraising:

Volunteers are critical to the success of our special events. Help is often needed with our annual Auction Committee and Box City Event. We are currently in the planning stages for both of these events.

Family Mentoring: In the Family Mentoring program, economically vulnerable families are matched with trained volunteer mentors who work with them, one-on-one, over an extended period. Mentors help individual families define and meet goals to:

  • develop life skills
  • connect with community resources
  • improve their housing and employment situations
  • nurture and support their children
