    Bigger Vision of Athens

    6 volunteers - sign up to volunteer

    At Bigger Vision we serve adults who are experiencing homelessness and one of the struggles we face is connecting those we serve with the most up-to-date resources for their needs, especially now with COVID. Therefore, we would greatly appreciate assistance in developing a resource binder to continue to stay abreast to the newest resources available in our community that we can share with those we serve.
