Why are we serving here?

One of the ways ForColumbia strives to love and serve our neighbors is by serving those non-profit organizations that are actively working every day in the lives of people in Columbia. Woodhaven is an organization that advocates for those with disabilities so as to enhance their lives, provide quality opportunities for choice and a safe community in which individuals with disabilities can connect. Many of those served by Woodhaven live in private homes with a caregiver, allowing them to live with more independence. As a caregiver focusing on the practical and emotional needs of disabled adults, it can be difficult to also maintain the property of the home they share. This year we are sending volunteers to these individual homes to help indoors and outside, to provide the kind of labor that these folks often cannot do for themselves. This is why we believe your day will be well spent serving Woodhaven.
