Last year, we developed a meaningful partnership with our friends at No One Left Behind (NOLB) - Pittsburgh Chapter. A non profit organization that helps Afghan and Iraqi combat interpreters with Special Immigrant Visas (SIVs) resettle safely in the United States. They bridge the gap that exists between current State Department and NGO refugee relief programs,and provide assistance with housing, employment and cultural adaptation.
We now share a storage container in Hazelwood, providing a secure space to store both organization's supplies.
For this project, we will be working with NOLB to build more shelves and organize the combined storage unit. We are going to need individuals comfortable moving heavy stuff, working with power tools, using paint/spray paint, good at organizing, enjoying a good laugh, and having fun.
Our storage unit is placed at the old Gladstone Middle School in Hazelwood right on Hazelwood Ave. Google Maps had no problem giving directions when I input that info. So please come out and join us! It’ll be fun!

Certain host organizations, such as schools, may prohibit volunteers with certain types of criminal convictions from participating in a service project. Accordingly, The Mission Continues is requesting your consent to conduct a criminal background check in the event that your Platoon is engaging in a service project with a host organization that requires a criminal background check. By checking the box below, you authorize The Mission Continues to conduct a criminal background check.
If such a background check is required, it will be completed and used in accordance with applicable law. The Mission Continues does not automatically disqualify persons from Platoons based on criminal convictions. We want as many people as possible to have the opportunity to move forward in their lives through service, at the same time that we seek to protect the communities we serve together.
