I am the Exec. Director and part of a dedicated team of all volunteers at The Community Builder. My work involves providing support services to disadvantaged families, unsheltered homeless and unaccompanied youth who visit our resource center to assist them in becoming self-sufficient.

We provide internet accessible computers, basic computer skills, digital and financial literacy certificate classes and workforce development. Our community cares program helps with providing job interview clothing, survival backpacks to make life easier for those living on the street and a warms safe place where anyone is welcome to drop in. Additional, we partner with government agencies and community organization to provide clothing vouchers and home furnishings for their clients in need.

The most rewarding part about the work I do is being there when someone you help succeeds at getting off the street and moving into a place of their own. No matter how difficult, its that moment that makes it all worth it.
