United Way Day of Caring

As a United Way member agency, we welcome groups as part of the United Way Day of Caring campaign. Volunteering is a great team-building activity and can provide a leadership-building experience too! If your company is interested in being part of the United Way Day of Caring, please contact your United Way staff partner or your company’s United Way campaign chair.

Susan is a public speaker, educating people about the criminal justice system and legal rights. She exudes confidence and speaks with passion. It is hard to imagine that just a year ago, Susan was struggling with low self-esteem and was extremely shy. After a long history of incarceration, Susan was determined to change her life for the better. Susan joined the Peer Leadership program and developed public speaking skills, connected with positive role models and built her confidence. Susan is now a community educator, has re-connected with her family and is mentoring new members of the Peer Leadership program.
