Year in Review

2012 was a busy year!  We partnered with 768 volunteers who dedicated more than 6,800 hours of service to repair 85 homes, renovate five nonprofit facilities and revitalize three community spaces.  Thank you to all of our volunteers who dedicated their time and energy to these projects!

In addition to helping more homeowners and communities than ever, we also grew in terms of staff in 2012.  In August, we hired Tyler White as a part-time Office Manager.  Three new AmeriCorps members joined us in August. We also hired Tony Sjogren as Program Manager in December.

As the need for our services continues to grow, we plan to help more homeowners than ever in 2013.  Thank you again for helping us ensure that more people can live independently in homes that are safe and healthy!
