Serve with Buildings and Teams

We work with Building and Corporate Teams to strengthen the community and foster a community-oriented co-working space. Teams are challenged to focus on and discuss critical social issues each month of the year.

Measure Impact

We measure the impact of all our programs, projects, and Days of Service so that our clients and nonprofit community partners can view the value that they are adding in their local communities.
