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.
Our mission is to be a premier organization that serves as a catalyst for change, improves the quality of life, and empowers disadvantaged communities through education and other resources.
The organization was founded and organized in June 2004. The focus is two pronged: the flagship program, Adopt-A-Family and Adopt-A-School. The Adopt-A-Family program continues to empower families through home ownership, scholarships, financial support, and transportation. The Adopt-A-School program encompasses Crenshaw High School, Washington Preparatory High School, and Garr Academy of Mathmatics and Entrepreneurial Studies. Computers, scholarships, SAT workshops, and M.E.S.A. programs have been provided. The signature program at the high shcool level is a leadership program which offers an experiential leadership experience for the students. They learn everything from financial literacy, to criminal justice, to technology programs, to name a few.
