A group of volunteers from Citizens Bank working in our community garden!

We're all in this together.

Each year, business people, students of all ages, retirees and church members give their time to improve the lives of our 700+ individuals and families.

Join our growing volunteer corps!

My involvement with Genesis has truly been a joyful addition to my life, and you have gone out of your way to make me feel welcome.  The staff has been a pleasure to work with, and I am constantly impressed with the high level of skill they exhibit in their work and the love and respect they have for their students.  It is an honor to be associated with such a high caliber institution.  - Sandy Yates, 2014-2017 Volunteer
