As a volunteer at Florence Crittenton-Wheeling, WV, I began a birthday party social once a month to celebrate the girls and children born in that month. This September marks our second year and we have celebrated hundreds of teenagers and toddlers. What sparked my interest was a comment made by one of the residents. She stated it was her birthday and she never felt that any one cared that she was even born. I wanted to change that. She is so important...her life does matter...she is special...and God has a plan for her future no matter what her past was like. I look forward to each birthday and take cake, ice cream, pop and gifts. I am glad to be a part of the Florence Crittenton Volunteers!

Becoming a volunteer at Crittenton stated by me saying I wanted to rock babies since I retired. This person in turn got a job there as a nurse, called her Mom and told me they needed volunteers. A couple of phone calls later I was there filling out papers. If you go on a regular basis you become attached to the babies probably more that the girls. I know some really appreciate it more than others and that is ok. The staff is always very appreciative. I guess I just hope that some of the mom's will realize that there are people, perfect strangers even, that want to help them. Not point fingers just pure help. The babies are so helpless and I hope that since they are at Crittenton that will give them a better future and hope. I hope I have made a difference for someone.

I have been volunteering at Florence Crittenton for 6 months. It has been a priveledge to get to be part of what they are doing there. Getting to know the girls and help them prepare to care for their children has been a gift. The staff has been so wonderful in helping me get involved. They've even taken care of my children so that I could sit in on volunteer meetings! I can't begin to say what a worthy and wonderful organization this is.

As President of an all-volunteer advocacy organization for girls, volunteering as a partner with The National Crittenton Foundation has been a growthful and supportive opportunity. Combining our Oregon voice with a national organization supporting girls living at the margin of the American dream overcome major obstacles rooted in circumstances not of their own making enhances our advocacy and the abililty of young women's voices to be heard.
