The Labor of Love efforts benefit the entire county.  As needs are discovered, volunteers from this organization assist in rebuilding homes, perform general home repairs such as plumbing and electrical, or whatever may be required to make the home safer and functional. 

YOUR help is needed as a Labor of Love volunteer! If you have a love of woodworking and a few free hours, special assistance is needed as a Site Coordinator. This is an ongoing role that helps to pull all the "parts" together to make each job happen. Click HERE to learn more about the Labor of Love.

Who's Doing What & Why
Organization of the Month
Visit our Blog

Each December on National Wreaths Across America Day (December 14th), this organization carries out its mission to Remember, Honor and Teach by coordinating wreath-laying ceremonies at Arlington National Cemetery, as well as at more than 1,600 additional locations in all 50 U.S. states, at sea and abroad. This year, the organization will be honoring the fallen at the historic Athens Cemetery.

This promises to be a beautiful remembrance of those passed. Won't you please consider stopping by the cemetery and thanking their volunteers?


Let there be Peace on Earth - a phrase often heard this time of year. The Family Peace Project practices this year 'round as a Christ-centered organization, working to protect, educate, assist, care and empower victims of Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault in Henderson & Kaufman counties in Texas.

This month, we salute them for their tireless efforts.


First and foremost, this website was created to help citizens of Athens connect with each other and sometimes, that means we'll be offering insights into local events, issues, and more.
