At Other Option, I felt as welcome as the clients. The staff and other volunteers helped me to find opportunities to be useful and fulfilled in every task I was given. I really appreciated that I could work alone stocking shelves or working along side other volunteers on special projects or directly with clients. The flexibility suited me perfectly. Volunteers, staff and clients all made me if they were my second family.

I have been affiliated with Other Options for more than 20 years as an advocate, supporter and volunteer. In the last two years I have become more involved and now serve on the board. I can't tell you how much gratitude I feel by helping in the small part that I do. This organization helps so many people with their food pantry and so many other services they provide, primarily for HIV & AIDS patients. Many people discriminate against these groups, but what people don't realize is that there are children and families that we help on a daily basis. Many people and families are affected by this disease. People tend to judge and they shouldn't.

Those we help feed through the food pantry are growing in numbers as the economy worsens. These are chronically ill people who depend on nutrition to help prevent other illnesses with their underlying disease. In the last year, we have increased our outreach and now provide Humanitarian Medication relief to EIGHT countries and we are expanding that list regularly

Move it to their own location rather than seeing them have to use their monies on rent. The Exec. Director is working hard to raise money to make that possible and has made huge strides in at lease securing a hefty down-payment on a building.
