Volunteers can only do so much. When it comes to larger jobs or services that require specialized skills, we want to be able to provide our members with vendors that are reputable. Our vetting process includes an application, checking references, making sure the vendor is in good standing with the State of Iowa and the Better Business Bureau, making sure the vendor has current licensure, insurance and bonding, where applicable, and an interview to make sure they are a good fit for our members.
We need vendors to help us improve the lives of our members with services outside of a volunteers capabilities. It's a great way to give back to the community
