Palmer College has been working with us several times a year, helping to build homes for families in our community. They have done everything from construction to trench digging, landscaping, painting and sod laying. Palmer Habi-Team

On Saturday, April 25th, Palmer College worked with our team of Care-a-Vanners and the Washington family, who will soon be moving into their brand new home on Traveler’s Palm Drive in Edgewater.
