Why are we serving here?

One way ForColumbia strives to love and serve our neighbors is by supporting the non-profit organizations that work daily to help hurting Columbians. Stonebridge House is a non-profit founded in 2022 to help women coming out of prison by providing housing, practical needs, community, and, in their words, “a toolkit to come out of incarceration and into a new story.”

This non-profit also partners with several other established non-profits in our city to help women achieve personal development goals. When we all work together for the good of others, how can we not see flourishing? For this reason, we believe your time will be well spent serving this non-profit.

What can I expect?

ForColumbia 2024 Volunteer T-ShirtsVolunteers at this site will be working indoors and outside:

  • landscaping all around the home;
  • cutting limbs, raking leaves, and filling some holes in the yard with dirt/seed;
  • providing minor interior repairs to the basement of the home, such as caulking and replacing the dryer vent, among others;
  • organizing donations and hanging donated clothing;
  • potentially painting a small area inside the home, and;
  • other projects as identified.

What should I bring?

ForColumbia will provide all the tools and plants necessary for this project.

  • Volunteers are encouraged to bring their own garden rakes to spread mulch.
  • Volunteers should bring work/garden gloves.
  • Come prepared to work outside. We encourage you to bring sunscreen and/or a hat if it’s sunny.
  • We encourage all volunteers to wear close-toed shoes.
  • Be sure to wear your #ForColumbia T-shirt!

Can I serve here with my children?

Because this site is relatively small and needs much work to be completed, we do not recommend serving here with kids younger than high school students.
