Most rewarding thing about working here.

The people and the outcomes. I have the chance to work and learn along side some of the most committed and passionate people in both the staff and volunteers who are a part of this work. It is extremely rewarding to see those people who come with passion, commitment, unique skills, and hearts of service and what they can accomplish working alongside communities. I believe deeply in working together to transform and raise up all. In my role having the chance to really focus on the people development to support this is a dream.
