“I have found the agency and all its staff kind helpful and understanding.  There is a wealth of knowledge in the agency and everyone is willing to answer questions and make themselves available.  Having a supervisor on hand I feel has helped me enormously and I would recommend anyone to do the training and become a volunteer.”
