“Our volunteers continued to be the life-blood of the organization,” said Jeri Barr, CEO of The Center for Family Resources. “From board leadership to GED tutors, and apartment set-ups to food drives, our volunteers make what we do possible. We are proud to honor their support.”
During 2011, More than 500 volunteers gave nearly 7,000 hours of time to CFR. That is a dollar value of nearly $147,000.
