WHY WELLSHARE?

I’ve always wanted to join a nonprofit that provides help and education to those in greatest need. While I was researching possible places to volunteer, I found WellShare, and it was exactly what I was looking for. I’m very happy to be part of this organization, as it approaches its work with great accountability.

I enjoyed attending the staff meetings that helped me learn about the programs of the organization in greater detail. I loved working with the International Program Director, Laura Sanka, who introduced me to the nonprofit world. I also enjoyed learning from C.C. Strom on the fundraising processes. I really appreciated the Executive Director, Diana DuBois for taking the time to answer all my questions with honesty and transparency about the organization.
