Welcoming New Volunteers

vol gradOn Friday March 28th, 2014, W.O.M.A.N., Inc. and the Riley Center joined with friends, family, and community supporters to honor the completion of the Winter 48-Hour Collaborative Anti-DV Training. We celebrated the graduation of seven new crisis line advocates.  Please join me in welcoming Anisa Berry, Christina Bulman, Susan Carroll, Trang Chau and Bibiana Gutierrez to the team! Our current volunteers Erin Durkee and Kelsey Wiedenhoefer also completed the 48-hour training so they will also be joining our crisis line.

We also celebrated the graduation of some of our community partners. We are happy to congratulate Teresa Chang from Homeless Prenatal, Nancy Ding and Karen Chu from Cameron House and Eva Klein from the Family Violence Law Center.

It was a full and exciting six weeks of training! The new team of advocates brings an array amazing skills and we are so happy to have them embark on their volunteer journey with us. They will be completing their observation shifts in the office beginning in April so stop by and say hello to them!

Thanks to EVERYONE who made this training and all trainings a success. We could not do it without the help of community partners who come and speak; sharing their skills, knowledge, and experience.  Thank you!

If you or someone you know wants to participate in the Summer 2014 Training beginning in June, please contact Maureen@womaninc.org
