“Volunteering has provided me with a sense of fulfillment and purpose, knowing that I am making a meaningful contribution to my community and the lives of others.

I am a mom of two boys and a child and youth care advocate, my life revolves around creating a nurturing and supportive environment for my family while also advocating for the wellbeing of children in my community. I am grateful for the love and support they provide me everyday.”
