CARE CREW – HOME IMPROVEMENT
Volunteers may lead or assist with projects such as painting, gardening, and organizing.
“The adults currently served by our residential living program have big backyards where they enjoy gardening, relaxing, and enjoying a game of catch. With our 17 group homes, there are plenty of projects for volunteers to transform the client’s yard into a garden oasis!”
Adults are typically present to assist volunteers with home improvement projects.
