Volunteers make the difference in the success of the HomeStretch programs. With your help families can move to stable finances, employment, family relationships and housing. There are many opportunities throughout the year to fit your time frame and skill sets.
You or your group can volunteer for a few hours, a day or an extended commitment. Regardless of the time you invest, you can help transform the lives of HomeStretch families by sharing your time and talents.
