The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Sometimes in life, we just need someone to listen to our story. If you like helping people, consider being a Peer to Peer counselor. In this program you receive training and are matched with a person over 60 who has experienced a recent traumatic event in their life. You meet and talk for an hour a week. Periodic status reports are required and there are training updates you would have to attend. You and the client would be from the same general area. Clients can meet with a counselor for up to 6 months, though matches don't usually last that long. Are you willing to be of assistance to someone in a tough spot in their life? Contact me today.
