Over the years, each time I volunteered it had a profound effect on me. When my children were in early elementary school I volunteered in their classrooms making visual tools and games to teach reading. This led me to go back to school and become an art major. After graduating, I volunteered to help a friend in her classroom; this lead me to get a credential in teaching. I then taught in both public and private schools for ten years. Each time I volunteered, it moved me into another new direction.

Volunteering at Mama’s House was no exception. I first offered my services in any way teaching would be involved. I started tutoring women in English and Government for a high school diploma. The women always thank me for my help, but it is I who thank them. It is an honor to work with women who want to get ahead to attain their goals.

I also graduated from a business school and acquired organizational skills from that experience which lends itself to being an all around helper wherever I am needed. I have met so many nice people and made many new friends through the lovely Hope Center. The Hope Center is a sanctuary filled with God’s love, peace, and guidance welcoming all who enter.
