This message is from Jessica Silk. Jessica has known Wendy for 3 years now. Jessica would like to say that Wendy is a great listener and "great at listening to whatever I need to talk about." She helped me find a new volunteer job in my community. I have moved out on my own and have my own life now and Wendy was there every step of the way to listen to me when I needed a good person to listen to what I wanted or needed.
From Jessicas Mom. In a world of busy busy people on their phones or text messaging or trying to make ends meet or thinking about their own problems....The greatest gift was to have someone who just listened...attentively....really listened to Jessica....and heard her voice and did not rush her or judge her. Just listen and listen and let her have a voice....sometimes for hours. That in itself....makes the service of facilitation worthwhile. Think of a time anyone listened to you without being interrupted by a text message or phone call or having to rush to another appointment or have somewhere more important to go. When someone pays that kind of attention to what you want and what you need....it makes a difference...and can change lives. We need these people like Wendy for our families in our community.
