Give of Yourself

Volunteering can have a long-lasting impact on people, programs and communities. When Delores Young chose to make a difference in her community, she began her volunteer service at the MIHS McDowell Healthcare Center. Initially, Delores was a member of the Ryan White Consumer Advisory Board, which functions as an advocacy and support group for People Living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA). This introduction to working with PLWHA inspired her to do more. After meeting Lorraine Brown, Family Advocate at McDowell, Delores decided she wanted to officially serve as a MIHS volunteer with the goal of learning how to effectively facilitate and develop a women’s group. She now assists Lorraine with facilitating the McDowell Women’s Group, a support group dedicated to helping women with or affected by HIV. Delores has a regular schedule and a wide variety of responsibilities such as meeting and greeting women at their appointments and at the weekly Women’s Group, making reminder calls, and providing assistance with light office work. Having been a MIHS volunteer for almost a year, Delores loves her work and has made many friends. MIHS is very grateful to have Delores graciously devote her time to make a difference in the lives of so many.

“The only way to be a part of an organization is to give of yourself freely” – Delores Young.
