OMD has been acclaimed as ‘a window into the world of child welfare’, an accolade we carry carefully. Our volunteers are unique in that they are welcomed through secure doors, down fluorescent lit hallways, and into humble rooms that offer comfort to children in times of extreme stress. We share glimpses of the world from which those we serve come, but unless you’re one of us, you’ve never seen a glimpse into our world. I’ve asked one of our earliest members, trusted friend and colleague Darcy Blankenship, to give us a little tour of what she does as Volunteer Coordinator for the Vancouver offices. Here’s what she had to say.
