Demetrius Barnes has volunteered with NEOCH for over 5 years. She comes into the office almost everyday and is willing to help with anything. Barnes does clerical, phone calls, filing and sorting of donations. If you attend one of the meetings at NEOCH, you have probably received a call from Ms. Barnes. She lives in the MidTown area and wants to give back to her community. Barnes has great hopes to use the skills she has learned at NEOCH to find a permanent job. She has volunteered for her church and for the Bishop Cosgrove Center in the past, and attends the Homeless Congress and Hand Up Gala as well.
Ms. Barnes enjoyed the dinner at the annual meeting and felt the evening was very special. She was surprised that she won the volunteer of the year award. She almost missed the event because she was nervous about attending. We are so glad that she showed up and we are glad that she shows up everyday to help.
