February Volunteer of the Month: Jennifer Caughey

Congratulations to Jennifer Caughey, February Volunteer of the Month!

From nominating staff person, Social Services Director, Miranda Chavez:

One Friday at the Food and Nutrition Center (FNC) we had a woman experiencing homelessness and very much in crisis. While I was on the phone with 911 and trying to close the lobby and breezeway doors to keep folks safe, she got to the FNC door before me and walked in. Staff attempted to get her to exit but she was refusing. In comes superstar volunteer Jennifer. She spoke to the woman gently and kindly and guided her away from other participants and towards a space where we could communicate with her and have her exit without further issue. Jennifer is always kind and patient with participants, staff and with the day-to-day hustle and bustle of the FNC, she has a smile for everyone. She was a huge help on Friday and I was really grateful!
