Meet one of our volunteers, Sabrina Woon! Sabrina has been volunteering with us since July 2016 and has supported us with the W.O.M.A.N., Inc. 24-hour hotline amongst other organization functions. Volunteers are the backbone of our organization and we truly could not thrive without people like Sabrina on our team. Read more about her & the anti-violence work she does with W.O.M.A.N., Inc. below:
1) Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I am a woman, a friend and a mother who is strong, passionate and independent. I have two kids who keep me busy and I am also currently in school working on obtaining my esthetician license. I consider my life a work in progress as there still so much I’d love to try and do.
2) What is your role and what opportunities have you been involved with at the organization?
I am a W.O.M.A.N., Inc volunteer and I work the overnight shift on the support line once a week. I also got to guest bartend at one of the fundraisers which was really fun and I’m looking forward to being involved in even more.
3) What propelled you to volunteer with us & what motivates you to continue the anti-violence work you do?
What propelled me to volunteer with W.O.M.A.N., Inc. was my own personal upbringing and life experiences. I was determined to break the cycle of violence for my children and also find healing and forgiveness through helping others do the same. Every time I have reached a hard point in the anti-violence work I stop and think about how important it was for me to make sure my children don’t go through the same things I did and that is my biggest motivation.
