Did you know that more than 200 volunteers serve throughout our ministry? They include doctors, nurses, physician’s assistants, lawyers, interior designers, counselors, receptionists, business professionals, contractors, graphic designers, administrative experts, computer specialists, and students who help on our Willing to WaitTM Drama Team. Our facilities are even cleaned by volunteers! In fact during this past year, more than $300,000 contributed by our generous volunteers through their self-less service. Thank you volunteers – you are making a life-sized difference!
