There is a place for you

We create opportunities for people to come together, for neighbors to connect, for individuals to make a difference—for everyone to work together to make an impact on our region.

At the Ripley House Neighborhood Center, Ernestina serves on the Senior Center Site Council and also serves meals to her peers for the senior center’s daily congregate meal program. She is a food certified volunteer, so she often goes the extra mile by helping the daily operation of the center when staff is sick or on vacation. We are so fortunate to have Ernestina as a volunteer and member of our Ripley House Senior Program as we would not be able to run as well as we do without her!
