Our volunteers, like all individuals, need dedicated time to tie up loose ends, reflect on accomplishments, and set intentions for the upcoming year.

By prioritizing their needs and offering flexibility, we strengthen their commitment and dedication to our cause, ultimately enhancing volunteer satisfaction and retention.

This time allows us to assess our progress, identify areas for improvement, and strategize innovative approaches to further our mission of lifestyle recovery.

By allowing our volunteers to , we prioritize their holistic wellness. Beyond personal obligations, the holiday season is By granting volunteers time off, we empower them to spend quality time with their families, while participating in acts of kindness and contributing to the festive spirit within their communities.
