Harrisonburg, VA - Thanks to a grant award from the Learning by Giving Foundation, in partnership with James Madison University, Gemeinschaft Home hosted an open house on September 21, 2018, to give local area college students the opportunity to learn about our nonprofit mission and the people we serve.
Throughout the afternoon, nearly 100 students from JMU and Eastern Mennonite University were on grounds, talking with residents and staff, touring the main house and program facility, and taking part in various activities and light refreshments. As more students become familiar with Gemeinschaft Home, they are increasingly seeking out opportunities to volunteer, to become interns, and to find other ways to be involved with the organization.
