"My volunteers have been wonderful throughout the years. They have been dependable, extremely competent, personable, and of great assistance. ~  Communicare elder

The program has been God sent.  ~ Communicare elder

Wintershelter is like double coupons or Buy One, Get One Free at the grocery -- it enables one to use his/her leisure time to contribute to the community. ~ Charles Elliott

My helper has a keen sense of working with senior members. Even your doctors or nurses don’t take the time to listen to your concerns these days. He’s more like a family. You have to live alone to appreciate that. Thanks Communicare. ~ Communicare elder

I have been a volunteer at WinterShelter for many years, I first signed up to work there in 1989! There were a few years I missed, but I have enjoyed, and benefited from all my time there. The men are so grateful, friendly and helpful. You cannot help walking away from there with a great sense of thankfulness for all that you have, and a feeling of joy at being able to help those less fortunate than ourselves. I look forward to another season at WinterShelter! ~ Deborah Fine
