Client Services

Author's Note: Paying homage to an organization and to volunteerism. This was originally written April 10, 2013.

Walking into a new place
Not sure what I’m about to face
Receive the assignment for the day
Do not mind working without pay

Feelings of distress, room smells like smoke
Fire destroys lives, takes away hope
Paper processing, lots of frustration
Sad to see this happen so often

Voices crack, eyes become watery
Try to answer questions, listen to their story
Responsible to explain the next step
Intake is a challenge, one I gladly accept

Take notes, be an observer
Learning how to be an effective caseworker
Gain experience and develop new skills
Someday this will help pay some bills

Love helping others, this my future career
Very proud to be an American Red Cross volunteer!
