Join HandsOn Bay Area this fall for our San Mateo County Teamworks series. In this series, we will be learning about income inequality in the South Bay and the challenges that vulnerable households face, as well as explore San Mateo non-profit agencies that function as critical safety nets for families in need. We encourage you to join us in service to learn more about how you can contribute to strengthening and supporting safety nets in your community in order to help low income families prosper.

Project 1 - Collective Roots, September 6, 6:00pm - 8:00pm
