Goals & Strategy

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goals include:
promoting awareness of our non-profit partners and their needs
providing guidance, tools, and resources to those wishing to help
creating an active citizenry
uniting the community through the common goal of doing good
improving our people and places through hands-on service

We partner with all non-profit and community agencies in Thomas County, Georgia whose overall goal is to improve our community.

We provide services to all citizens of Thomas County, Georgia regardless of age, ethnicity, sex, background, religion, or political affiliation.

All of our programs and volunteer event days act as "gateways", allowing easy access for those who wish to help, but may not know where to begin; and create an easy opportunity for our community partners to fulfill their project-driven and on-going volunteer needs.

We also provide daily volunteer placement for those not able to attend scheduled days, or who seek a more personalized experience.

Although we are a small organization with a small staff, we believe in seeking out and creating relationships within the community to achieve our goals. We are a part of this community and we are invested in its success!

We have continued to grow our programs/events, participation, and organization from year to year. We hope to continue on this track. The more we do, the more others are encouraged to do...and vice versa!
