Finding My Footing - Naming My Support

Reflections from HFA / YAV-AVL Volunteer Jeremy...

In Asheville, I have the pleasure of working for Homeward Bound, an organization that houses people from homelessness. Aside from coordinating volunteers and managing our donation center, my direct service responsibilities include picking up donated furniture and household goods, and then delivering those items to clients who are moving into a new home. This means that the most people I interact with are volunteers, donors, and the homeless clients themselves.

Salut!

In today’s blog, I want to switch things up a bit and talk briefly about why I feel the work I’m doing through the Young Adult Volunteers program is so important in America’s current post-election state. But before I do that, let me tell you a little bit more about what it is that I do.

Finding my Job

I don’t think anyone would argue about the beauty of the mountains. They have been especially stunning this fall. A few weeks ago, we went to Max Patch to see what all the hype was about. The hike was short but steep, but we huffed and puffed our way up. The views were more magnificent than I could describe. One of my housemates told me that you could see four other states from the top. It was so amazing.
