VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES: VANTAGE HOSPICE Vantage Volunteers Needed! Looking to volunteer in a way that makes a difference in people’s lives? This is it! Our compassionate volunteer team takes an individualized approach to care. We help provide the best quality of life, for the end of life. This is accomplished through social interaction, companionship, active listening and activities. In addition, sometimes we aide and support the family by relieving the caregiver. If interested, contact Tracy Roth at troth@vantagehospice.com. FOSTER CHILDREN: PREPARATION FOR ADULT LIVING (PAL) When foster children reach age 18, they are considered independent. That’s difficult for kids who have been wards of the state, with necessities arranged by caseworkers with state funds. Now they’ll have to figure out how to organize themselves and make their money last a whole month. Fortunately, Child protective Services offers them a program to help prepare for independence: Preparation for Adult Living (PAL). The year-long course culminates in an all-day workshop hosted by the National Council for Jewish Women (NCJW). The course is held at Junior Achievement’s BizTown, using computer kiosks sponsored by local businesses. Want to help with PAL or other NCJW programs that help change lives with handson community service? Contact info@ncjwhouston.org or see www. ncjwhouston.org. LICENSED HEAT FREE 1st lb.
