Our Team

Our Volunteer Leaders

We are a volunteer-powered organization which thrives on the generosity of hundreds of volunteers focused on improving the quality of life for not only survivors, but our community.

We continue to grow by the outpouring of business and organization support, a pay-it-forward
spirit and the belief that supporting local survivors builds stronger families and creates a stronger community.
