Program: Wilkins Avenue Women’s Assessment Center

Volunteer since: January 2012

What is your favorite thing about volunteering?  “Even for an hour a week, we know that we are helping provide a safe, comfortable environment where participants can move, stretch, and get exercise for not only their bodies, but minds as well. It’s always fun to watch the ladies walk down the hill and into our studio, which many of us consider our second home. We hope they feel the same way in our ‘home.'”

“Watching the progress of some of the women who have been with us from the beginning has been wonderful. It’s always nice to have lots of people in class and returners, but we are even happier when we don’t see them because they have moved on to the next stage of their lives and moved out of the shelter. It’s bittersweet.”
