We can utilize a variety of skills and interests
A variety of skills and competencies are needed now and in the coming years. Volunteers can provide input in multiple areas. Examples of needs:

Church groups, Rotary groups and organizations interested in partnering with us are encouraged to contact us so we can discuss how we can partner together.
We have identified renovation needs (building projects) that groups can get involved in. See examples of recent projects.
We have many developmental needs. The leaders and staff of the hospital and church wings need support. Contact us about current needs and read about our Development Project to get a picture of the processes we aleady are working on. You may have ways to support us in those processes – or other prioritized needs.
