Whenever you are feeling alone and wanting to live a more fulfilling life, the most important thing you can do is to find other people that you can spend time with. However, it may also be helpful to get information from other sources that have knowledge in the field.

Many times friendships develop when working together on a project.    (Second Harvest Food Bank)        (Special Olympics)  (Habitat for Humanity of Orange County)
