My name is Amy and I am the volunteer coordinator here at Family Abuse Center. My days usually begin with assessing what current needs exist in terms of volunteer tasks. After I get a sense of the most pressing needs of the day, I look at the schedule to see which volunteers will be helping us today and then assign tasks accordingly. I’ve answered emails from last evening and this morning, returned a couple of phone calls requesting speakers at community events and talked with Brittany, our children’s coordinator, about a special volunteer project for our Easter celebration here at the shelter. The sun is shining and it is going to be a great day!
I spent some time talking about scheduling with a volunteer who is a single Mom and full-time student. I am always amazed at what our volunteers juggle in their lives in order to give of their time and talents to FAC! This afternoon will find me engrossed in data entry for reporting purposes. Not the most glamorous part of the job, but certainly necessary
This afternoon we enjoyed research presentations based on FAC statistical data by two of our interns and then had our bi-weekly staff meeting. The children are beginning to arrive on the school buses and our volunteers and AmeriCorps members will be waiting to help them with their homework. Another productive day at Family Abuse Center! – Amy
