A STORY FROM OUR AGENCY:
Volunteers of America Western Nebraska recently worked with a single father, who had been experiencing domestic violence within his home. Our connection to him came through our home visitation program, focused on engaging parents as the first and most important teachers in their children’s lives. After experiencing a crisis situation, the father found himself in an unstable living environment with his 8-month-old child. Our agency was able to help coordinate services to help him move forward. Volunteers of America Western Nebraska was able to provide case management, navigate resources for legal representation, as well as make the initial payments to secure housing for two months so that he could build a better path, for himself and his child. The client recently reached out to our office with a message stating the following: "It's all seeming to come together but the help we got from Volunteers of America Western Nebraska is what made it all possible."
The Volunteers of America story is long and rich. And widely unknown. But we are not chasing fame or glory. Our lives are meant for service. We help because we are impassioned. We are honored.
