Individual Volunteer Spotlight
- Hellean Lewis (pictured below) has always helped people. She worked for nearly 20 years as a nurses assistant, caring for the elderly and children with disabilities. In 2012, as she began looking for ways to be active and involved in the community, she turned to the AARP, who referred her to our organization. Volunteers of America works with the local AARP Foundation to match seniors with meaningful volunteer opportunities. This worked well for Lewis. Soon, she was volunteering regularly at Terraces on Tulane, our senior housing development in New Orleans. “I really love coming to work with the residents at the Terraces. It makes me feel good to help them,” she says.
