Opportunities to serve in Tucson

Community Renewal

Randy Reynolds, Executive Director of Community Renewal, is looking for people to come alongside others in need of microloans. Microloans are designed to help those in poverty pay off loans with extreme interest rates. Microloans are then paid back without interest charged. If you would like to be a part of changing the life of someone in poverty, please contact Catherine at communityrenewal@gmail.com.
