Ethel, a long-time volunteer with the Daytime Resource Program, discusses why she loves working with Waypoint:
“I started volunteering because I’ve always loved working with people, and this allows me to continue to help others. I’m not a rich person; I can’t buy things for people, but I enjoy bagging up [hygiene products] knowing it helps people out.”
Pam, who works with Waypoint’s Domestic Violence Victim Services Program, starting volunteering because she wanted to give back to the new community she was calling home.
“It is a very humbling experience when another person opens the door to their life and lets you in, especially in the wake of violence, loss, or trauma of any kind. I believe that it’s a sacred place and one to be entered into with care and empathy . . . to be trusted with another human being’s pain, to bear witness to the truth of their pain, and to bear the burden of that truth with them is sacred. I’m not sure I have the words beyond humbled and moved.”
Thank you for your interest in helping Waypoint inspire people to move forward in their lives!
