JEVS Human Services
January 14, 2010
I have been on the Board of Trustees for several years. My reason for accepting this role was that i had seen so many wonderful things our various agencies have done with so many people within the community at large, without regard for race, creed or any other identifying factor. My first personal awareness came while visiting one of our group homes and I witnessed the care our clients were receiving. I felt that if I, or a family member were to need similiar assistance, this would be what i could only hope for. The clients were honored and respected as people by all the staff and one could see thaey were comfortable in their home.
second, i have witnessed the work done at OTI with our students and the sccesses they've made for themseves after their training. They are now better able to provide for themselves and have the dignity one deserves.
I could go on about the success I've seen in the community, yet I want to also mention how great the administrative team is to work with. I just always feel that they look at their work as a vocation, not just a job, the exude compassion for their clients and for the community as a whole. I am truly proud to be associated with JEVS.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
watching the staff model the behaviors that any and everyone could follow in this, and other , fields. ( I like me better when i am with them.)
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
very tuned in to the needs of their clients and the community in general, and totally willing to create a better environment
