Durham Chapter of The Links Inc.

Genesis Home

Volunteer for 12 years

The Durham Chapter of The Links wears many hats at Genesis Home. Last year, more than 40 members volunteered, serving as parents’ workshop leaders, youth enrichment facilitators and family engagement coordinators. They develop, recruit volunteers and coordinate the activities. Some of the topics for their workshops have been dental health, managing stress and budgeting tips.

The members of the group purchase the items needed for the sessions, create fliers to post at GH and develop evaluations to use at the conclusion of each session. They help link our families to community resources and services. Chapter members have become involved in committees outside the involvement of the group and recruit volunteers outside of the group. The impact of this band of women is immeasurable.

Thank you women of Links for your dedication and service to help homeless families!
