WHAT VOLUNTEERS SAY

"I found a way to help people, and also make some great friends."

"Being a counselor is helping me prepare for elder issues

"I received much more in shared compassion and knowledge about aging than I think I gave to all three of my clients."



"The training has been extremely interesting and eye opening. I've learned so much about myself and others.    



"I have found a way to use some of my previous training and experience when
I am doing peer counseling."
