Over the past few years Central City Concern’s Community Volunteer Corps (CVC) have become a staple volunteer group here at the ReBuilding Center and we look forward to hosting them every week. We were honored to have the chance to nominate them for the Volunteer Innovation Award at the 2012 Portland Trail Blazers/Hands on Greater Portland Heart of the Community Awards.
CVC’s clients are formerly homeless and participate in the program to build their resumes and skills and get back into the workforce. In the process, they have delivered more than 30,000 hours of volunteer services to numerous nonprofits in our community including well over 3,000 hours at The ReBuilding Center alone.
