We work together to assist those in need.

As an organization that operates primarily through assistance from community donations and community volunteers, we can only serve individuals in need with the support of volunteers like you.

We are blessed with a strong, giving and supportive community in Decatur. Community volunteers have, since our inception, been the backbone of our organization. In our work we strive to both help individuals in need and ensure our community volunteers have a fulfilling experience.
