MAKE A DIFFERENCE!!
Being able to go home at the end of the day having helped even one person is extremely rewarding and we’d love to share that experience with you.
We feel very strongly about the manner in which clients are treated and expect that our volunteers share the same philosophy.
We expect that all volunteers treat our clients with respect and compassion, and understand the importance of confidentiality. Every client that walks through the door is treated fairly and with dignity and we will always try our best to provide every client with a positive experience.
