Great people to work with. Everyone is happy to have people join and help. Plus I am using it as an internship for troubleshooting electronics to help add to my resume.

T.O.U.C.H. is one of the best places I have volunteered. The people are so great -- the staff, other volunteers, and program participants. There is a feeling of teamwork, working toward the same goal. I like the small-office feel. The morale is great. I have spent the majority of my time there volunteering in the clothing bank area, but I have recently also started attending the Women's Group sessions, and I have learned so much about this population of people that I used to have such preconceived notions of. The participants are eager and forthcoming and honest and spiritual. I have truly enjoyed getting to know everyone I've come into contact with at T.O.U.C.H.
