We Focus on Six Key Areas to Make an Impact

Disaster Services

When disaster strikes, we repair homes, assist survivors, and help restore communities when it matters most. We have deployed thousands of members and volunteers to areas affected by hurricanes, wildfires, floods, and tornadoes.

Disaster Services

Economic Opportunity

Our programs serve as a pathway to employment opportunities and help develop vital work skills. We build and rehabilitate affordable housing, provide financial literacy training, and connect people to jobs.

Economic Opportunity


More than 51,000 members and volunteers support students in nearly 9,500 public, private, and charter schools across the country. Through our work we improve attendance and engagement, increase high-school graduation rates and expand college enrollment.


Environmental Stewardship

We serve on projects that cover thousands of acres of public lands across America – including many with the National Park Service. We help conserve natural habitats, protect clean air and water, and reduce utility bills by improving home energy efficiency.


Healthy Futures

We provide independent living services to 310,000 elderly Americans. We also build the capacity of food banks, combat the opioid crisis, tackle homelessness, and address food insecurity.

Healthy Futures

Veterans & Military Families

We provide assistance to nearly 290,000 veterans and military families by connecting them to education opportunities, jobs, and the benefits they have earned. Many veterans also volunteer with us so they can continue to serve their country.
