Flat River Outreach Ministries shared the following with us about their August Volunteer of the Month. If you are interested in volunteering with FROM, you can find a list of upcoming orientations on the group’s Facebook page.
The Volunteer of the Month for August is Michelle Young, Connections Volunteer. Michelle started volunteering at FROM in February 2017 and since then has been volunteering between 5 and 8 hours each week (a total of 250 volunteer hours since she started!). As a MSW, Michelle enjoys having a chance to get back into Social Work after taking some time off as a stay-at-home mom. “I feel fortunate to be here at FROM. It’s been a great experience and a chance to get skills back that I hadn’t used for a few years.”
Michelle says one of her favorite things about volunteering is “getting to know the clients, I enjoy meeting with them and finding out their needs and goals and what areas they want to address.”
“FROM is such a neat organization and I’m blessed to be here. The people here really care about volunteers and they provide support to us and listen to the needs of volunteers. You couldn’t find a place that was more inviting.”
Thank you so much Michelle for all you do to help individuals and families that walk through our doors. We appreciate all the work you do in the Connections Office and are so glad you choose to volunteer at FROM.
