November Volunteer Spotlight

November Volunteer Spotlight

Volunteers play a pivotal role in the lives of nonprofits. Without volunteers, organizations wouldn’t have the time or ability to do many needed tasks.

Sometimes a nonprofit gets really lucky and find a volunteer that’s passionate about your organization and comes back time and time again no matter how many envelopes you ask them to address. Ashlee Mayer is one of those volunteers.

The Wheeler House Mom Makes an Impact

The Wheeler House Mom Makes an Impact

Jainah loves to serve. She loves to minister to those who are overlooked, underestimated and outcasted in their own communities. When looking for a place to use her skill set, she came across The Wheeler House. 

Jainah has been the House Mom at The Wheeler House since it opened in 2015 and recently concluded her time with us. While most people would have only stayed for one year, Jainah stayed for three.
