"This has become such a wonderful experience for the office… Volunteering with Imagine Housing is a great way for us to meet community members, support affordable housing, and build relationships." - Rich W., monthly community dinner volunteer

"It has been one of the biggest joys and honors to be serving with Imagine Housing. What an amazing organization this is! The staff and leadership have a clear passion for loving on the community and providing safe and comfortable living spaces for the people in our local neighborhoods. My husband and I always look forward to serving our monthly community meals at Francis Village alongside our church group. The residents at Francis Village have become our friends!
