- Few things in life are as rewarding as knowing you have done something in a very tangible way to help someone less fortunate than yourself.
- You can experience that feeling by becoming a Compassion Society Volunteer.

EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR'S MESSAGE
"I want to be part of a community and workforce where people feel appreciated and are treated with respect and dignity. My aim is to continue the tradition of the Compassion Society being a place where clients feel supported and the volunteers and staff love coming in to help the needier among us. Some great people at Compassion Society inspire me and I hope I live up to their high expectations."
