MORE is blessed to have a dedicated, caring staff, who give of themselves generously to the people of MORE.  Ten full-time and six part-time staff support our day-to-day operations. In addition, six community volunteers represent MORE’s diverse ethnic groups and distribute donated goods through our Saturday “Garage Ministry”.
