Volunteering makes us happy.
We love connecting to the broader community, taking what we're good at (and sometimes what we're just enthusiastic about, like building houses) and sharing it with others.
Causes we actively support
Children of the Nations (COTN)
COTN helps orphaned and destitute children in the USA, Dominican Republic, Africa and Haiti, operating homes, schools, farms, skill centers and village food centers. It has over 400 US and international staff, tens of thousands of volunteers, and provides help daily to more than 23,000 children.
Every year Thom travels to the Dominican Republic to assist in a COTN homebuilding program.www.cotni.org
Habitat for Humanity
Habitat for Humanity is a world leader in addressing the issue of affordable housing for low income families. Since its founding in 1976, it has helped build safe, decent homes for 6.8 million people. Thom participates in its Bellevue fundraiser each year.www.habitat.org
