Shay’s Story

Our church was promoting volunteering for Alternatives. I’ve been retired for about eight years, and it gives me a chance to do the things that I wanted to do forever. So I got involved in the volunteer training, and I learned even though you want to help someone, you really have to have the tools and know how to care.

I realized that God really is involved in this program. I learned to really trust in God.

Listen to Shay’s Story:

WHEN SOMEONE REACHES OUT FOR ALTERNATIVES, YOU CAN BECOME THE VOICE, HEART AND HANDS OF OUR MINISTRY.

And you, too, can become a volunteer Client Advocate, like Shay. Male Client Advocates are also needed to serve the men who accompany our female clients.

To learn more about becoming a Client Advocate — and other volunteer opportunities with Alternatives — visit our Volunteer Information page.
