My job title is volunteer home visitor. I visit those who call our hotline in need wherever they live.
My work involves meeting in the home with the clients who call our hotline, assessing their needs and requests. They may call asking for some small help like a gas card to get them to work and when we arrive and see they have no furniture, we help with that, also. We have helped with such a variety of needs the list would be too long, but for the most part we are helping those who find themselves in a difficult spot temporarily.
What I like about my job is getting to know those we serve. It is the bonding with people I have never met, in their home, that makes me realize we are one family on this earth.
Sometimes our clients' burdens feel so heavy on our hearts for days.
