What is your favorite part of volunteering for Family Promise?
My favorite part of volunteering with Family Promise is knowing that we offer a service in our community like none other. Being able to help FAMILIES that are functioning parts of our society get back on their feet and become stable again is a vital function to any community. To know we are the only door open to these families makes me proud to be a part of the organization.
Do you have any favorite memories from your time serving Family Promise?
In October, shortly after joining the board, I had the opportunity to take pictures at a Christmas in October event we held. Watching these children from past families and new families with smiles on their faces and seeing the relief from the parents made my heart warm.
Do you belong to a congregation or are you an unaffiliated volunteer?
I am am unaffiliated volunteer and do not belong to a church here in Fort Bend County.
Do you have any kids and/or pets?
I do not have any children at this time, however I have three crazy Schnauzers: Marcelie, Ralphie, and Zoie.
From looking at you, no one would guess that...
I am a natural introvert and work hard at being comfortable in large social settings.
Favorite place to eat:
I am a foodie and love to try new places, Yves and I even plan our travel around food experiences. However I have a few places that are staples: Brandani's in Missouri City, Mocking Bird Bistro in Midtown, Killen's in Pearland, and Otto's in Fredericksburg.
What would you tell people who are considering helping Fort Bend Family Promise?
Pay it forward! Volunteering for FBFP will open your eyes to a need in our community most people never know about. In my opinion, family homelessness is covert and needs more light shed on it. Having new volunteers will help us solve a great need in our community.CONTACT
