Did you know that more than 200 volunteers serve throughout our ministry? They include doctors, nurses, lawyers, interior designers, counselors, receptionists, business professionals, contractors, administrative experts, computer specialists, and students who help on our Willing to WaitTM Leadership Team. Our facilities are even cleaned by volunteers! In fact, during this past year more than $300,000 was contributed by our generous volunteers through their selfless service. Thank you, volunteers – you are making a life-sized difference!
