Congratulations to our Volunteers

Congratulations to our own Opportunity Center volunteers Emerson Stelle, Rachita Pathipati, Goral Pahuja, and Laya Bharath who graduated the Claude Moore Community Builders Class on Saturday, March 16! The CMCB program was established in 2007 with a grant from the Claude Moore Charitable Foundation, to provide youth in Loudoun County with a certified program that would encourage civic participation, self-awareness, and self-development. All Builders are required to give 100 hours during the program through individual placements at county nonprofits, group service days, and professional development seminars. Thank you to Loudoun Youth and Loudoun Cares for placing such great volunteers with our organization. Many thanks to Emerson, Rachita, Goral and Laya for your time and service at the Opportunity Center!

Congratulations Miki

We’re so proud of former program participant Michoale “Miki” Lewis, who was the keynote speaker at Loudoun Habitat for Humanity’s recent gala. Miki is working toward her own Habitat home, so she can realize her life-long dream of building a stable foundation for her children. If you would like to volunteer for one of Miki’s Habitat house workdays, please contact Julie Steele, Homeowner Services Manager at
