Anna Marie's Alliance
May 10, 2010
As a computer tutor, my experience with the women is limited to our time in the lab. I really enjoy working with the women, though I often feel I can't help them enough. This is not a function of the shelter, but of the amount of time and energy I am able to devote to it. Some day I hope to be able to do more, because I really like the organization, and the women who I have helped.
Anna Marie's provides such a critical service in our community, and they do it with respect for all the families who stay there. Computer skills are not necessarily one of the highest priorities for women at the shelter, so often they are really in need of basic needs. But I think Anna Marie's does their best to provide more than just the basics – in hopes of helping the women transition to a better place when they leave.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
gaining a greater understanding of their services and how I can help them. I never would have thought to volunteer as a computer mentor, as I am no expert. But they sort of found me, and I feel I'm helping the women with very practical information.
