How I got to Pittsburgh:
I am doing this year of service through Change A Heart Franciscan Volunteer Program. I chose this program as the host of my year of service because it will provide the opportunity to live in community with other volunteers and support my journey throughout the year. Doing a year of service through a faith based program like this provides unique resources in reflection, community and solidarity. This program is based only in Pittsburgh and is connected with the Franciscan Sisters of the Neumann Communities.
What I am Doing:
My service will be divided between the programs Operation Safety Net and New Lease on Life. Both of these programs are a part of Mercy Health Care Systems of Pittsburgh. I am working as an Americorps volunteer for the year!
Our 10.5 hour drive/journey will begin August 17th with a pit stop somewhere in PA and end August 18th in Pittsburgh!
Change A Heart Orientation begins August 18th!
First day at work is August 26th!
ALSO – I have been sent my new mailing address for those who are interested!
