I believe that at some point in everyone’s life, we have all witnessed a family member, friend, neighbor, co-worker or community member struggle with finances, social stereotypes or health/mental health issues. As a society, we rely on the generosity of this same group of people to help those in need.
Usually, these experiences give most of us some reason to think about the circumstance and decide what we can contribute to ensure a positive outcome. Sharing your time and talents to improve the community you live in is something we all can do.
It gives me a great sense of personal satisfaction to volunteer with The Maine Way, Inc. I feel very fortunate to be part of a team of volunteers that is committed providing to long term opportunities and solutions to those members of our community who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless.
