I work as a program manager for the Are You OK JUST CHECKING PROGRAM at the crisis center for Region #3 SWVMHI when a client is release and they sign up for the program I call them and ask how they are doing and remind them of. their next appointment with Cumberland Mountain CSB or Mount Rogers CSB
I have volunteered with the Crisis Center for several months now, and I have enjoyed getting to know the staff and other volunteers here. The Just Checking program is awesome! Calling and talking with Elderly or Home-bound individuals and putting a smile on their face makes me really feel like I am making a difference.
