I love connecting people to rewarding experiences and am fortunate to have spent my professional career doing just that. Volunteers are an integral part of any non-profit organization- they bring the mission to life in the community! I am excited to be a part of the Compeer team, bringing friendship and empowerment to our community. When you volunteer, not only do you help others, you reap benefits in ways you likely would never dream. Hearing stories from volunteers about the great things they do makes me love my job even more!
1 of every 5 people will face a mental health challenge in their life. If you think more about that, at least one person in your circle of friends and family will be impacted. Think about how valuable your friends are to you; how many times you’ve reached out just to hear their voice on the other end of the phone and your day was instantly better. Join Compeer in providing friendship to someone who needs it!
