Volunteers expand our capacity – by helping out and accomplishing a variety of tasks, volunteers truly make an impact on the lives of families we serve while simultaneously freeing up staff time to focus solely on mission related tasks.

Below you'll find examples of just a few of the organizations we have come out and volunteer with Family Promise NNCC  

Agilent Technologies

Employees from Agilent Technologies come out multiple times a year to engage in a wide variety of volunteer activities. Over the years, volunteers from Agilent have renovated bathrooms, painted multiple rooms, landscaped, assembled furniture, decorated for the holidays, and a wealth of other activities.

Fox & Roach Realtors

Each year employees from Fox & Roach realtors come out to help out in any way they can. This past year, volunteers helped out with some much needed organization. Volunteers spent an entire morning organizing and cleaning out our attic. Volunteers also helped staff prepare materials for our biggest fundraiser of the year.

Chemours

Volunteers from Chemours came out on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, with the intention of brightening up our two cottages that make up our Hospitality Center. Volunteers painted a variety of inspirational quotes, positive scenery, and created a butterfly wall. Being homeless is a tough, challenging experience for a family to face. A little bit of color, some kind words and art can go a long way - putting the families we serve at ease and motivating them to change their situation.

Citi

Employees from Citi came out to help us prepare for the coming winter. Volunteers removed all of our air conditioning units and stored them for us. Volunteers raked and bagged leaves covering the entirety of our property, and a variety of other yard work. Volunteers also power-washed our shed, just to name a few of the tasks they accomplished.
