WHO ARE WE?
Philanthropy is an important aspect of life at the Collins Living-Learning Center. The Co-Directors of Philanthropy facilitate and organize philanthropic activities within Collins and in the greater Bloomington community. Part of our focus will be working to strengthen our relationship with Middle Way House, our RPS Adopt-A-Non-Profit partner, and part of our focus is on the rest of the community. One director will work specifically with Middle Way House and the other director will oversee of the rest of Collins philanthropic work.
WHAT IS MIDDLE WAY HOUSE?
Middle Way House is an organization that aides victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. At Collins, we often do programming for the children who live at the Rise, a transitional residence operated by Middle Way House. For more information, visit their website at www.middlewayhouse.org
HOW CAN YOU GET INVOLVED?
Throughout the year, we do several programs, and are always looking for residents who have a passion for community service! If you are interested in joining our committee, contact the directors! There are tons of other wonderful ways to volunteer opportunities in Bloomington such as; Middle Way House, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Best Buddies, and many, many others!
If you are doing any programming at Collins that you would like to benefit Middle Way House, please contact the director in charge of Middle Way House before planning your event.

Shown here is one of our little friends we met on our week long one credit hour Collins Seminar Spring Break for Kids, in which volunteers remain over spring break to do activities and go on field trips with kids in Middle Way House's emergency shelter and transitional programs.
