The Volunteer Philosophy
The all-volunteer FUSION organization is dedicated to providing housing and support services to families
facing homelessness. Raising funds to sustain this program, and managing and maintaining beautiful homes, takes considerable volunteer
effort. Helpers donate thousands of hours a year so homeless families have a safe and secure place to live while rebuilding their lives.
FUSION's growth and achievements are directly related to its volunteer force. Dedicated people who generously donate their valuable time have
developed FUSION into the viable organization it is.
— No one can do everything, but everyone can do something.
Generous people who donate time and skills to help provide housing to families facing homelessness are among FUSION's most valuable
assets. Help in many forms is welcome. Four forums
give volunteers an opportunity to offer skills and talents based on individual
interests. There are many needs in Housing, Fund Raising, Public Relations, Volunteer Communications and the
FUSION Décor Boutique
A large portion of FUSION's volunteer force is dedicated to managing and maintaining our houses and condos
. Plumbers fix leaks,
locksmiths restore security, professionals offer their company services. We also cherish volunteers who spend hundreds of hours
keeping the homes fresh, comfortable, ready for occupancy. This requires painting, cleaning, decorating, repairing and securing household
goods for these completely furnished housing units.
Volunteer efforts also raise FUSION operations funds. A primary focus for many is helping to plan and put on the annual Summer Art Event
that raises a substantial portion of FUSION's annual budget thanks to various talents and months of rewarding work. Volunteers also
secure sponsorship monies.
Keeping FUSION in a favorable public light is the work of Public Relations. This forum is staffed by helpers dedicated to telling the
FUSION story and garnering community support for the organization.
Because we treasure volunteers so highly, an entire forum is dedicated to nurturing them. Volunteer Communications recruits and mentors
new helpers, stays attuned to ideas for improving jobs, and supports involvement with emails dedicated to volunteerism.
For guidance, an all-volunteer working Board of Directors steers FUSION into ever productive directions. And an
Advisory Council of community leaders generously lends their expertise in all matters essential to FUSION's success.
Volunteer recognition events frequently spotlight individuals who contribute extraordinary time and talent to the FUSION mission. These honors
affirm how they have changed lives with their generous spirit. Success is reflected on the faces of families moving from sad homelessness into
the safe haven of homes these volunteers helped provide.
Volunteer efforts give homeless families the secure environment required for a path to self-sufficiency.
