When I decided to connect through volunteer work with the Houston community I e-mailed a dozen organizations listed on the web-site "Volunteer Houston." Omega House was the only response I received. It was a prompt, informative and welcoming response that offered training to fit my schedule. My training was thorough and prepared me very well for my involvement at Omega House. What I've found as a volunteeer is a warm, welcoming, appreciative family of staff and volunteers who care about what they are doing and express that care easily and often to the clients and their families. I've heard family members clients express what a blessing Omega House is, that they don't know what they would have done without it, and how much they feel welcomed and supported by everyone at Omega House. As a volunteeer Omega House is a blessing in my life too.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my interaction with the families of clients who express their gratitude for Omega House, as well as in the smiles and appreciation of the clients.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

invite and encourage some crafts, games and live music at Omega House. This is currently provided at the Bering-Omega Care Center and a scaled down version of this program could add some fun and diversion to Omega House clients who may not be up to traveling to the Care Center or want as large and as structured a format as the current program at the Care Center.

I started volunteering at Omega House back in February. I didn't think I would like working with a hospice, but gave it a try. I stayed in the kitchen and cleaned the first month or so, but the patients there are so wonderful and the staff and other volunteers are very understanding and let me come out of my shell on my own time. I look forward to going there and helping out the best I can

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing family members right after their loved one has passed away and they thank us and want to give back and help because Omega House has helped them and their loved one. Also, from the patients. They are extremely grateful and appreciative!

I have been volunteering at Bering Omega adult treatment center for about 5 months. It is one of the most rewarding and fun volunteer jobs I have ever had. I have been a volunteer in various capacities for organizations in Houston for 30 years and this is one of the best jobs ever. I feel that my time and energy is put to good use and I look forward to going every week. The program is well organized and planned.

I really enjoy encouraging the clients to participate in the activities. It is especially rewarding to see them encourage each other and care for each other. Clients come from a wide variety of backgrounds, so it is interesting to see the different approaches and ideas expressed. They truly are a supportive community as evidenced by the recent death of a client.

Really cannot think of a thing I would change except get them more funding so they can do all of the things they would like to do.
