Volunteers are the lifeblood of our organization. On 5/4/16, at the Southshore Pavilion in Bayview, we celebrated some of the all-stars of our organization who have gone above and beyond to further our vision of a world where everyone has a decent place to live. Thanks to all who’ve volunteered to help families in need of decent, affordable housing!
