The Mansfield Volunteer Program affectionately known as the MVP began in 2015 with the inception of the Volunteer Coordinator position within the City of Mansfield's Code Compliance Department. City Council formed a sub-committee whose focus was maintaining property values as well as improving Code Compliance. Realizing that there is often a root cause that an individual may be out of compliance, the MVP matches individuals and organizations wishing to serve in the community with those that may need assistance.
Mansfield has an impressive base of volunteers that has gained national and state-wide recognition. With over 10k annual volunteers, this program often produces over 55k hours of sweat equity. From cleaning trash in parks and creeks to building ADA compliant ramps and rails, MVP focuses on community collaboration.
