Our Team

OlyMAP started as a volunteer program, made up of people committed to creating and building community.

We are now a non-profit with several paid staff supporting our programs and outreach to camps. Volunteers and our community partners and friends continue to be essential to our work and mission.

Our Team

Our Team is made up of Mobile Case Workers, Site Support Workers and Admin. We  divide our time between the office and the sites that we work at, taking services directly to the people in our community.

Our Team is helping to shape and define what OlyMAP is and our work within the field.

Our Volunteers

Many of our volunteers are involved in multiple ways, others stick with what they like best, all of us are proud of what we do to help. Thank you all for what you do! None of our work would be possible without you.

Our Volunteers make it possible for many residents to have clean laundry, cooked food, get propane tanks refilled and tiny homes installed. This incredible community based work is what makes our community feel united and strong.
