February 2020 Volunteer of the Month: Jason
February we are celebrating Jason as Volunteer of the Month at NRS! Jason’s personality and endless empathy are an amazing asset to our team in the crisis services center.
The holiday season is an exciting time for most people. It is a chance to take a break from everyday life, spend time with loved ones, and reflect. For college students, it means leaving campus to return home. Most university campuses close their dorms during the winter break. This can be incredibly difficult for college students experiencing homelessness.
This month we are recognizing Isaac as Volunteer of the Month! Isaac is always an incredible source of empathy and hope for the youth in crisis who reach out to us. We couldn’t feel luckier to have them on our team! Read more about his experience at NRS with this interview below:
Allyson, Crisis Services Intern, explores how our Let’s Talk: Runaway Prevention Curriculum helps youth empathize with peers who run away from home, identify essential factors to consider before leaving home and the resources available to youth whether they ran away or not.
Heading back to school is an exciting, hectic time. The daily schedule of millions of children in the United States is flipped as they get back to learning. For children experiencing homelessness, however, this time of year can represent a difficult point of readjustment.
