Dahn LIn this issue, we spotlight Dahn L., who has been one of our stellar Child Care volunteers for six years.

How did you find out about the WCA?

I attended a “Soup Tweet-Up” at Moon’s Cafe where the WCA was a beneficiary of the proceeds.

Why do you volunteer with the WCA?

I love kids. I wanted the opportunity to be able to provide a positive male figure to the children; having them understand that there are still good people (especially men) out there they will love and support them.

What have you gotten most out of being a WCA volunteer?

Being able to build relationships with the children that have come through the program over the years. I’ve had some Mom’s say: “He/she always asks about you!”; and that’s is a pretty cool feeling.  It also warms my heart when a Mom will express her gratitude and say “Thank you for being here for my kids”.

What words or advice do you have for clients who are seeking our services?

WCA is a great community resource with loving and caring staff.  The first step is reaching out and the WCA will be there to help you navigate your journey to healing.

 Thank you, Dahn, for your years of support and enthusiasm!
