The Little Collaborative recently held their first annual Volunteer Open House. The focus of the event was threefold: 1. To build awareness off the continuum of services offered by the three programs: HELPLINK, Family Partnership, and Agape Financial; 2. Recognize our current Volunteers; and 3. Inspire others to join us as volunteers.
Honoring our Volunteers
Our volunteers are the best! To show our appreciation for their dedication and compassionate service to area families struggling with issues of poverty, we recognized three individuals.
Most Longstanding Volunteer: Al Svec
Al has been a mentor with Family Partnership since 2007. He successfully mentored an at risk teen, who has subsequently graduated. Currently, Al is mentoring an individual who is set to obtain her very first home through Habitat for Humanity. Thank you Al for your continuing dedication to mentoring.
Newest Volunteer: Randy McLure
Randy joined Family Partnership as a Mentor in January of 2015. He is currently mentoring a young man who, in the short time as Randy's mentee, has gone from homeless and jobless, to working with a temporary place to stay and a plan to continue in this positive direction. Congratulations Randy!
Training Participation Excellence: Staton Lorenz
The Little Collaborative Programs provide a variety of support and training programs to assist them in working with our neighbors who are struggling. Staton has attended nearly every training opportunity proved in the last year. Not only does Staton participate in sessions, he is a strong advocate for them and provides helpful input for continuous improvement. It should be noted that Staton is also mentor to three individuals with great success! Thank you for your amazing contributions Staton!
