I have been serving the Eau Claire area homeless community for the past 4 1/2 years. I started out volunteering and scheduling other volunteers at a warming center that was opened by Valleybrook Church. I spent a lot of time just sitting in that little church garage playing card games like Skip-Bo and Uno with the guests in the wee hours of the morning. Those hours with those people changed me, challenged me and inspired me.
Today I am the Volunteer Coordinator at Sojourner House and I absolutely love working for Catholic Charities! I enjoy working with each and every one of our volunteers, and I appreciate the teamwork and sense of accomplishment that comes along with it. I love hearing the stories of our volunteers who come away from their first shift with a new love for people and a deepened desire to help make a difference. I am grateful for my experiences so far with Catholic Charities and the Sojourner House, as well as the people we serve and the impact that it has on us all as human beings.
