Bevone Ritche, M.S.
Senior Program Manager, Parenting & Youth Development The Children's Trust
"United Way is about supporting their community, they are a nationally known organization with supportive services that are responsive to local community needs. As a volunteer, I have seen how United Way nurtures and supports their programs. They create many opportunities to develop relationships, such as site visits, trainings and portfolio reviews. I have enjoyed volunteering with familiar organizations supported by The Trust and United Way, as well as new programs that allow me to gain a broader understanding of my community.
Sharing this experience with fellow volunteers has opened my eyes to different ways of examining and understanding things. I feel my role as a volunteer is valued by the community and the organizations I have had the pleasure of working with."
