Since 1996, we have repaired over 500 homes and completed several community improvement projects, with the assistance of tens of thousands of volunteers. We work in partnership with communities, corporations, churches, service clubs, and volunteers, with an overall goal to improve the homes and neighborhoods of disadvantaged residents. We have found that our efforts, particularly when concentrated within a small geographic area, are sustainable and often act as a catalyst for additional neighborhood improvements.
