You’re lifesavers! When you have special needs kids and you work and live out in the middle of nowhere it is very difficult. We don’t know what we’d do without you. - Diane, Rider since 2011
Volunteers are at the heart of our organization and we rely on their contributions to keep the wheels moving. The support of our community is imperative in fulfilling our mission. We have a variety of opportunities for getting more involved with our organization.
