We connect hearts and hands.
We are the Volunteer and Information Center.
Led by our Executive Director, Susan Sauls (upper left), the VIC’s mission is to serve as the connector for those in need to the resources they need through involvement in financial literacy, family support, and nonprofit coalition-building programs.
We believe that a student’s success starts with a good night’s sleep. To foster the success of our future leaders, volunteers throughout the community come together to build beds for children in our community that do not have them. This program was started in 2011 and VIC has evolved the program to partner with Henderson County’s Habitat for Humanity
On October 28, 2017, volunteers assembled and painted 70 beds. This was increased from the 10 beds that were built in 2015. Inspirational messages were written on the multiple support slats in each of the beds. Also included in this project are “bedtime baskets”: hygiene products, stuffed toys, sheets, pillows, and blankets.
As of 2019, 160 beds have been assembled for Henderson County Youth without them.
