The Caring Craftsmen Team helps with needs around the home for  individuals with disabilities and their families.

The Caring Craftsmen

The team fixes much needed home repairs and assists with projects that these individuals could otherwise not afford or complete on their own.  

Making A House A Home volunteers help individuals with disabilities who are moving into the community or into their own places for the first time.  They help provide necessary household items to make this new house a home. Here’s aChecklistof the most common items! If you like to socialize and meet new people, you can also help us deliver items to the home.  Or you can provide a home-cooked meal or supplies for a meal on moving day.

The Give Back Crew is a group of folks who volunteer at different community events and causes throughout Allen County as a way to thank the community for its support of  people with developmental disabilities.
