The Resource Center supports professionals and others in the community assisting families by providing short-term resources until those families can be connected to sustainable assistance. Together, we can share in the burden of expense and make resources more easily accessible.

Volunteers are needed to assist teachers in virtual English language learning. Classes are held virtually Tuesday and Thursday mornings and Monday and Wednesday evenings. Volunteers are welcome to volunteer once a week or more!
As a teacher assistant, there is no prep work for you to complete. You simply show up to the class then work with students in groups on the class assignment the teacher has given them through conversational learning.Join this Project
