Adopt a Space
Bauer Family Resources would love for a group to "adopt" their waiting room and help keep the space inviting by visiting the Community Center once a month. Tasks might include:
- cleaning/arranging furniture;
- making a kids' space;
- ideas welcomed.
It is important to us that every person who enters the building feels welcome. With extra help, the staff at Bauer thinks they can improve the experiences of those they serve.If your group is interested, inquire through the volunteer center website
