Volunteers Desperately Needed!

We are in immediate, desperate need of reliable, committed volunteers. Since 2011, our clients served have increased at least 350%.  Last night we had 11 women at our weekly, Breaking Free Support/Life Skills Group. The majority of these women have accepted Christ as their Savior and are working diligently towards becoming disciples. In addition to the Support group 10 children were present, some which participate in our Tutoring Program, all of which require child care workers. Currently, we are serving approximately 45 individuals on a regular basis, many which do not have transportation and we transport them to and from appointments: counseling, group, food pantries, psychiatrist, medical doctor, acquiring legal, governmental and school documents, equine facility, airport, etc. Our clients range from being local to international, recently released from jail, pregnant, developmentally challenged, single mothers with up to four children to individuals enrolled in college, studying for their GED's, unemployed, and employed.  We are in need of individuals and/or groups that will partner with us in providing over 30 services and programs free of charge to the community:
