JOIN US AS WE REHAB A MOBILE HOME
FOR A DESERVING FAMILY

Mayflower has generously supported PIH which has given a life-changing leg up to 16 families over the last several years. Despite the fact that these homes start out in poor condition, they turn out beautifully with the help of contractors and volunteers. Crews can help with renovation or assist with move-in of furniture that had been donated.

For a family who basically has nothing, Mayflower and PIH are able to provide all they needed for a fresh start.
