HOW Volunteer Resource Developer, VISTA
Helping Our Women strives to provide services to women with chronic and life threatening and/or disabling illnesses and assist in creating a more manageable lifestyle; provide clients with referrals and advocacy that improves access to health care, social services and benefit programs; develop and implement programs that empower and educate women on issues related to health care and well-being and that are inclusive of diverse needs. HOW has an open door policy to provide advocacy and referrals to members of the community at-large. Volunteers are the backbone of HOW as they provide transportation and companionship for clients, increase socialization, assistance with chores and shopping and educational workshops for clients and other volunteers. The new VISTA will help us to continue to expand capacity and scope of our volunteer programs.
