HARBORING HEARTS
April 17, 2014

Volunteering with, and working to forward the mission of, Harboring Hearts has been one of the most incredible and rewarding experiences in my efforts to remaining involved and present with society. The particular issues confronted by the patients and families who seek help from HH are challenging to confront, but the team and leadership at HH remains patient and welcoming of the process and learnings every volunteer must face.

Further, seeing the faces of other people and organizations from the community, hospitals, and treatment centers puts an identity to an issue--a disease--often invisible in daily life. There is no other organization with which I have been empowered and welcomed to contribute, and likewise learned from the dynamic, impressive perspectives each and every officer, volunteer, supporter, and recipient share with the organization.

An A-plus group of people with big hearts, focused vision, and strong will to bring change and betterment to society.

Ways to make it better...

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

try to find a way that could allow them to expand the number of full-time staff--but that will come in time, and when it does, the impact they will make is certain to be one of positive, enduring, and respectful proportion.

Harboring Hearts Housing is one of the most integrated, comprehensive, and truly loving charities I have come across. Not only does HH bring together so many different people under a form of shared experience and solace, but it nurtures a mission of educating the patients and families about prevention, coping, recovery, and the very process-of-treatment. The families and patients whom I have had the opportunity to meet are just exceptional examples of courage, strength, and support. The organization's day-to-day is driven by a staff of committed individuals that are accessible, focused, and compassionate. I am proud to say that co-founder Michelle Javian is an old friend, but even more proud when I am able to volunteer and extend whatever I can for her, co-founder Yuki Kotani, the large team of supporters, the hospitals, volunteers, and board members that keep this vision on a path of growth and evolution.
