Everybody can be great. Because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve…. You don’t have to know the second theory of thermodynamics in physics to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.
— ~Martin Luther King, Jr.
 

There are many paths of OPPORTUNITY to serve and get involved…

The Options team is made up of many people with different skill-sets that work together for a common goal. Without this community structure, we wouldn't be able to fully serve those we work FOR. Volunteer often or once; there is always work to be done and room for growth.
