April is National Volunteer Month, a time to pause and say thanks to all the volunteers whose devotion and support for Compass Center for Women and Families enables us to provide the wide array of services we offer to our clients and the community. Our volunteers are often the first contact individuals and the community have with Compass Center, facilitating support groups, providing crisis support over the phone, one-on-one coaching and education, information in the office, and education in our schools and wider community.
JJ is just one wonderful example of the work that our volunteers do for Compass Center. He volunteers as a facilitator for Start Strong, Compass Center’s anti-bullying, pro-healthy relationships class for local 6th and 8th graders, and sees its value “every time middle school students tell [him] that people bully because of the problems they’re having with accepting themselves.” JJ also volunteers as a Domestic Hotline Advocate for a weekly hotline shift, answering calls and meeting with clients in our office for crisis counseling, protective orders, referrals and more.
THANK YOU to all our volunteers!
