LEMAY HOUSING PARTNERSHIP INC
November 29, 2011

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.
