One of our core values is being a part of our community by not only helping create a house into a home but also to support our community by giving back.
In 2018 and 2019 GAHS staff joined in the Walk With Me, Wish With Me benefit walk held by the Make-A-Wish foundation.

- Wolf River Conservancy GAHS cruised the streets in partnership with Wolf River Conservancy raising awareness about alternative transportation and environmental sustainability in 2019. The Wolf River Conservancy has focused on saving the 100-year floodplain from being developed or converted to non-natural and destructive land uses, such as sand and gravel mines. This focus has helped the Conservancy protect approximately 16,000 acres so far.
