I've known and been involved with Lemay Housing Partnership for 6 years and have nothing but wonderful things to say about their work in the community. They have a great staff and have made tremendous strides over the years in becoming a driving force and influence in neighborhood revitalization and beautification. I've volunteered many times most recently helping rake leaves at multiple home sites.

I have volunteered a couple times for Lemay Housing Partnership and I have had nothing but wonderful experiences. The people there are so incredibly kind and giving of themselves. This organization does so much good work and I definitely support their cause. All of my volunteer experiences have been great and they made me feel like I could make a difference.

I serve on the Board of Directors of the Lemay Housing Partnership, a community-based nonprofit organization. The organization strenthens the Lemay community by providing services that support the residents of the community and the housing stock in which they reside. I volunteer my time to this organization instead of othrs because of the ability to leverage the available funding with the use of volunteer labor and energy in everything they do. For instance, repairs that are made to the home of existing residents are increased beyond what contrating work funding can provide, because volunteers perform the labor of less technical tasks. This makes every government and private dollar go that much further.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My husband and I have attended volunteer days as possible on the weekend and helped with the clean up of yards for elderly and disabled residents.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

A goal of the Board of Directors and staff is to determine the viability of income producing programming that is in keeping with the mission of the organization. The time is now to do this as the fundidng from the Port Authority will quickly be gone!!
