Communities benefit from volunteers because the services they provide help families, individuals and the communities in general address local needs and problems.  An increase in community volunteerism leads to a decrease in crime and an increase in property values.  For more information on volunteering in the greater Tustin area or with the Tustin Community Foundation, please visit or the Foundation’s Volunteer in Tustin Facebook page.
