Through Learn&Serve Worcester, WAMS partners with organizations to offer youth and adults hands-on opportunities to achieve real objectives for the community along with deeper understanding and skills for themselves. Two such partners include Matthew25 and Habitat for Humanity MetroWest/ Greater Worcester.
Matthew25 Low Income Rental Housing:
