We are making an effort to expand our strategic partnerships with community organizations that serve historically disadvantaged populations. Our overall view is that strategic partnerships will strengthen our collective ability to serve disadvantaged populations, together. We are grateful to be in ongoing strategic partnerships with community leaders, including Mary Free Bed Rehabilitation Hospital, Kent Intermediate School District, and Department of Corrections, among many others.

Community Partnership Signup
As a volunteer, not only will you know you’ve helped change someone’s life, you’ll develop a stronger sense of community. It’s the little things–from washing cushions to donating time or expertise to driving to pick up a chair–that make a big difference.
Check out the current opportunities we have available here and feel free to apply.
