Volunteer Appreciation

April 12, 2019

April is volunteer appreciation month and we have a lot of reasons to be appreciative.

1,817 reasons to be exact!

Did you know that the national average dollar value per volunteer is $24.14 an hour? That is a huge impact and savings! Because of the generosity of others who volunteer, we are able to provide programming and services that might not be available otherwise.

Volunteers provided important support to programs by:

Helping to stabilize families who are experiencing a crisis
Providing experiences to youth to build leadership and reach their fullest potential
Providing necessary supports in our Early Childhood Education programs to help children reach developmental milestones
Providing free tax preparation that puts refunds back into the hands of hard-working NKY families
Providing assistance with resumes and conducting mock interviews with individuals seeking employment
Providing vital support to women on their path to recovery

Here is the incredible impact volunteers made in FY19 alone!

These volunteers helped Brighton Center serve 43,736 individuals through 41 programs on their path to long term self-sufficiency! We simply could not do this without our volunteers!
