PLEASE READ

Hi there! We’re currently in the process of moving, and now through December 2018 will not be answering letters from prisoners. This means that we’re not currently hosting our normal volunteer orientations on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday evening and may have periods of time without regular volunteer hours. We will update this page with our hours and what volunteer tasks are available as our move progresses. Thank you for your patience!

You can learn more about how to help us while we’re moving HERE.
