Mary came home last week with the happy news that she will be starting paid work at the homeless shelter where she has been volunteering two days a week for the last year. This is full time, temporary work during the “giving season.” It will last from October through mid January.
They gave her a chance to practice her skills in accounting on a regular basis. Now they will give her a chance to be paid for it. Volunteering can lead to paid work.
And next week she will start on-the-road driving instruction in at the local rehabilitative driving school.
