FAMILY PLACE INC
May 10, 2010

I came to the Family Place a several years ago for counsling as a victim of domestic violence and the Family Place was aport in a storm for me whenI really needd it. Several years ago I decided that I wanted to volunteer my time because my son was now an adult and there was no other place that I wanted to give my time to other than the Family Place. I have been volunteering for the Family Place BIPP prorgram for three years now and it has been s o rewarding for me and I have really enjoyed being at the Family Place. I have watched as the counlors at the Family Place do wonderful work and help to change lives.
