"A gentle breeze blowing in the right direction is better than a pair of strong oars."- Canary Island Proverb
The Community Storehouse matches community professionals whose expertise, resources, and skills can greatly benefit needy clients, essentially serving as a "resource bank".
The FACC maintains a list of professionals in a variety of fields who have pledged their services. The beauty of the program is that you - the professional - contribute according to your time, desire and ability to do so. No pressure, no complicated system to navigate - just practical service outlets that have positive life altering changes to those served. Our staff will assure confidentiality and organize requests in such a way as to maximize timeliness and convenience.
In exchange, clients served by the project are required to contribute to the goodwill created within the program by offering their time as volunteers in the community. Depending on the value of their storehouse request, clients volunteer their talents or time at a number of service oriented organizations to return in-kind what they themselves received.
