BERING OMEGA COMMUNITY SERVICES
June 20, 2011

I began my work with Bering Omega Community Services through the Jesuit Volunteer Corps. I served as a full-time volunteer, 40 hours per week for a year, at their dental clinic, Day Treatment Program, and Omega House, their residential hospice. Words cannot describe the impact that opportunity had on me. I was fortunate enough to get hired as a Front Desk Coordinator at the Dental Clinic after my volunteer year, and I have now served as the Volunteer Coordinator for just over a year.
I feel blessed and fortunate to be able to provide similar experiences to new volunteers looking to make a difference in their community. I also see the work that is done for our clients, not only by volunteers, but by our staff, and I feel fortunate that we are able to provide the services we do. Without our agency, our clients lives would be lacking, to say the least.

The Great!

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

the satisfaction of knowing that we provide essential services to persons affected by HIV/AIDS.

Ways to make it better...

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

increase funding to provide more services to more clients!

MY ROLE:
General Member of the Public & Volunteered, worked at the dental clinic, am now the Volunteer Coordinator.
