A Heartfelt Thanks to All our Volunteers!
April is Volunteer Appreciation Month
and we wanted to take this opportunity to share our thoughts on all that our volunteers make possible for our clients and community...
"A Woman’s Place couldn’t operate without volunteers.They do many, many things to support my work in the shelter and as a counselor -  they take phone calls, look up resources, put together grocery or toiletry packages for me to give to clients, help me with computer challenges, and just listen when I need to decompress after a difficult client or a personal challenge that I notice is starting to creep into my work. The quality of the people is phenomenal, and they deserve so much of our appreciation.  Thank you Volunteers!"
-Julie
"Over the past 15 months our wonderful and dedicated Legal Advocacy Volunteer Team helped accompany 1,229 Temporary and Final PFA clients to their court hearings and offered 1,410 volunteer hours to the Program! You are all S uperWomen and an invaluable part of our Team - Thank You!" 
-Carol and Megan
"The In Full Swing volunteers are generous with their time and talents. Our volunteers create a helpful and inviting environment for all of our clients and customers. We're grateful for all their hard work and dedication."
-Donna, Brian, Lara and Nancy
"First Response relies on and values our on-call volunteers so much! Because of their commitment to supporting our 24/7 program, staff is able to recharge and maintain a healthy work-life balance, something that is crucial to maintaining longevity in this work! They also provide the community with the safety and support they need in the midst of a crisis."
-Courtney, Erika and Dayna
"Donating time is a gift often beyond a dollar amount and all of The Empowerment Project volunteers have given their all !"
-Ann


"The Prevention Project has been operating short-staffed since August 2015. But with the help of our trusty admin volunteers, and our faithful volunteer educators, we've been able to reach students in 19 schools across Bucks County, health care professionals at 5 hospitals, and countless others at various community locations To our Prevention Project volunteers, and to all AWP volunteers, THANK YOU for all that you do and all the you make possible!"
- Christina and Lark
