What is Truly Appreciated?


A volunteer recently described working one on one with a client. It's an experimental service we call 1to1. With sufficient church partners, volunteers and tools in place, we would like to scale up 1to1 eventually. The volunteer bought lunch for a client. The volunteer invested time with the client. The volunteer purchased a weekly bus pass for the client so they could get their ID and go to job interviews.

The volunteer let me know that they received a thank you message. It said, "Thank you for the lunch and bus pass. They were nice. But the best thing was that you listened to me as a person for an hour. Thank you for that gift. I treasure it."
