Our program is focused on empowering individuals and their families with tools to achieve self-sufficiency through sponsorship. When you sponsor through Unbound, you offer a hand up — not a handout — to a family working to lift themselves out of poverty through hard work, initiative and hope. www.Unbound.org They have several Volunteer Opportunities available and are very flexible as to times. Family Friendly !
