I have been volunteering at Resource Inc. in family group, celebrating families program and the child development area for the last 2 years. I have seen first hand the positive impact these programs have on families. Alot of the clients are single women with children trying to make a better life for themselves and the lives of their children. Resource, Inc. provides programs, training and encouragement to help them acheive their goals and independence. I enjoy the weekly interaction with the kids and getting to know them individually. My volunteer experience has been rewarding for me as an individual.
