Volunteer News and Information


Thanks For Volunteering With Us!
2019 National Volunteer Week is all about YOU!

Did you know that this week is "2019 National Volunteer Week" and is an annual celebration observed in many countries to promote and show appreciation for volunteerism and volunteering?

As the new Executive Director of FUSION, I continue to be amazed and inspired by the work being accomplished by our dedicated and compassionate volunteers. This week is dedicated to our many Fusion Volunteers and to what inspires them to contribute to the FUSION mission to help our families in need.

From the work that occurs in our Boutique, to the housing units that are prepared with love and provided for families at a time when their challenges seem insurmountable, our volunteers are a catalyst for the miracles that occur in the lives of our Fusion families.

As a FUSION volunteer you have taken action to have an impact on the challenge of homelessness at a time in history when homelessness is at critical mass. You have felt the power to change lives through volunteer opportunities, and have been a force that ultimately transforms the world. We thank you and we honor you this 2019 National Volunteer Week.
