I served on this board for 6 years and have remained a huge advocate and supporter because of my experience as a board member. This organization genuinely engages it's board members to understand the impact that this organization has on the community as well as the women and children that it serves. We met the women in crisis and heard their stories. We hung out with the children in the shelters while assisting them at making hand made Mothers day cards. We were also invited/encouraged to go through the Advocacy training for the Assault Shelter. This is a 40 hour training experience that lead to one of the most eye-opening experiences of my life. I will never forget my first day of volunteering in the shelter and hearing the desperate cry of a mother on the phone as she learned about losing care of her children. As hard as it was to hear this, I knew that she had a support system around her within Waypoint that would lend her guidance and keep her safe. I often think of that woman and wonder what would she have done if Waypoint was not there for her...........
