Review for Gabriel House of care , Jacksonville, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

When I started volunteering at the Gabriel House of Care a little over two years ago, I did't realize the magnitude of what it meant. Volunteering not only provides support for the House and the guests, but how it personally fulfills me every time I'm there. The staff is truly appreciative, and more importantly, how they lead through example with heartfelt compassion and respect.

Yes - the cost is manageable, the convenience and cleanliness are a real plus, the pleasant environment and comaraderie makes everyone feel at home, and the family style meals lessen some of the pressure. However, it's the total mindfulness approach to helping patients and their caregivers heal and feel as though there is some sense of normalcy. Patients and caregivers are a huge support to each other and lifelong friends are made here.

So I hope I can help at the GHOC - but actually it helps me more than I imagined.
