“If you believe in children, Moms, and families, then you should volunteer. If you believe in human dignity and that women and children deserve to thrive in a supportive environment where they can laugh and grow, then you should volunteer. If you understand that one’s circumstances, however oppressive, can be altered and improved with the right kind of support, then you should volunteer.”
– Sylvie Butler, New Generation volunteer
