Adult Engagement Program: The goal of the adult engagement initiative is to assist residents living in NCRs Supportive Housing communities to re-engage and give back to the community. Residents will be introduced to employment skills and training through engaging community based volunteer experiences. Community Service & Volunteer Engagement Program: Part of being civically invested in your community is giving back through service.
