I volunteer at Homes First! by doing office work. Homes First! purchases a variety of houses, apartments or duplexes that may need some tender loving care. After rehabilitating them, Homes First! makes this housing available to low income individuals and families for low rent. They also work with non-profit organizations to provide housing to developmentally disabled individuals in the community and others needing help. I am proud to be able to help Homes First! with their contributions to people in need here in Thurston County, WA!
