“My husband and I moved to Savannah a year and a half ago. I was working with United Methodist Insurance and felt a call to get out more in the community, to work with an organization that was impacting people’s lives daily.”
Why Union Mission?
“Union Mission has the opportunity and does impact the lives of people that, in the Bible, are often described as ‘the least of these’. They are often people who don’t have a voice and Union Mission provides that voice. Being a part of an organization that can really help people in those kinds of situations is especially meaningful to me.“
