I have been volunteering with NMCRS since 2004, in 3 different locations in Europe and the US. They have given me so much - support, friendship, training, and valuable work experience. I have been able to help service members directly, taught classes, gained experience with managing large groups of volunteers, and I have also been trained to help clients in financial management cases. It is a wonderful organization with so many possibilities to serve!
