Beth Raymond: Volunteer Extraordinaire
Beth Raymond is a tireless volunteer for Family Promise of Greater Nashua. She serves as Group Coordinator for our Nashua East volunteers, which means that once a month she makes sure that the house is fully staffed with volunteers to help the families. And, Beth makes sure that all slots are filled, even if it means she gives up her weekend days to help our families. She also helps to spread the word about our program, answers questions in the community, and helps with events. She is such an asset and we are so thankful for everything she does! Here’s how she describes her commitment to help families in our community:
“I started to volunteer with Family Promise about a year after the program started in Nashua. I stayed overnight in the First Church basement with the families. And you would not believe how loud the steam pipes in the First Church Basement are in the winter! That was an experience.
All my life, I have volunteered as a way of being of service to the community. There are so many ways a volunteer can help in their community so I decided a long time ago to focus on programs that helped with affordable housing or homelessness in some way. That is why I am committed to helping at the Family Promise of Greater Nashua at Anne Marie House, this is one of the few local programs which help people find and afford to get into housing.
I have met so many families over the years. I am always impressed with their determination and courage as they work through whatever it takes to have a good home for their families.”
