This month, we caught up with GWCF Administrative Assistant
about her election to the Board of Directors at
, an organization that provides shelter and services to women in need.
GWCF: What does being part of this Board mean to you?
I was once a resident at Abby's House. The program offered me safety, support, new connections, and the time I needed to get back on my feet. I'm honored to be part of their Board.
GWCF: What will you be able to offer through your role?
Through my work at GWCF, I've gained an understanding of the type of commitment required of Board members. In addition to being an active voice at the table, I hope to spread the message that no one should feel ashamed if they find themselves needing the types of services places like Abby's House offer.
Anyone can end up on hard times. You don't think homelessness could happen to you until it does.
