The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Homeport's mission is to create and preserve healthy, stable and affordable communities, one neighborhood, one person at a time.
Homeport provides quality, affordable homes and social services to low and moderate income households in Central Ohio.
Homeport builds both affordable apartment communities and homes for sale. In communities where our residents live, we and our partners provide social services such as afterschool and summer camp programs, book fairs, back to school supply drives, free produce markets, and linkage to other resources to make families and seniors successful renters and home owners.
I think that this is a great organization that so many different disciplines could benefit from working with. As someone interested in planning I love how comprehensive they are and how involved they are with different facets of the communities they service. They were also really great with working around my class and work schedule.
The Homeport staff makes volunteering great fun. Even though volunteering is work related, I never feel like I'm working because I'm doing something I truly relish, and that’s helping others. I've gained so much admiration for Homeport and the way they reach out to people in need. Volunteering with Homeport is not just a job… it’s a collaborative effort between colleagues who want to make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate than you and I. They say it takes a village to raise a child. Well, it takes Homeport and volunteers to collaboratively build that village!
