How long have you been with the Shelter? I have been at the shelter for 10 months and I love my job!
What is your favorite part about your job? When I see the kids’ eyes light up and get excited about the meals they are about to eat and are grateful for them.
Share your favorite kid moment. When they realize I remember what their likes and dislikes are and love me enough to give me nicknames. I am currently Momma T.
How are the Shelter’s programs impacting kids every day? I see kids come in here with below average grade levels and work hard to bring those up while making new friends in the process. I see kids come in broken and leave feeling loved and cared for, which is such a great feeling. I see kids come back and feel like they are safe and cared for and loved here instead of being scared of a new place. I love that the staff here work so hard so all of these children feel happy about their stay with us. I love our staff family and volunteers who work so hard and do our part as a team to keep this facility open for all who need us. I am blessed to know these children and get to be a small part of their lives.
