Our volunteers see beyond the abstractions and statistics of poverty. They come to know real people with real needs. They begin with the basics, providing shelter, meals and support services to homeless families.

But many of them go on to do much more, creating new programs and partnerships to solve local problems and meet local needs. Some have developed transitional housing.

Others have established parenting classes and tutoring programs for children. Still others have set up health clinics, renovated housing, and created job-training programs.
