We are very proud of our volunteers. We have over 100 and we actively nominate them for awards to recognise what outstanding people they are and how much our community appreciates their work and their commitment.
We consciously and intentionally try to find young people as volunteers because our work gives them the opportunity to develop their best qualities and to begin a lifetime of helping others. These young people come from all kinds of backgrounds, races, religions and cultures - and all of their service is for people from all around the world. It is direct service and contact with the families whom HWF serves. We are particularly proud that our 100 HWF members include a significant number of wonderful Youth Volunteers - some have been with us for years and at least one who is still in high school has volunteered with HWF for over one thousand hours.
