Volunteers of America Center of Hope Program Director Ronald Woodward shared with County 10 Stanley Bean was awarded “Volunteer of the Year” from Volunteers of America Northern Rockies.
Below is what Woodward shared about Stanley.
I have been privileged to work with Stanley for several years now and always found him to be a valued member of our team. Stanley’s dedication to provide spiritual guidance is an important part of our program.
Stanley facilitates our bible study program here at the Center of Hope. Rain or shine, summer and winter, Stanley joins our clients at least once a week to share the word of God.
There have been several times when Stanley had trouble with his vehicle or was not feeling 100%, but still put the needs of our clients above his own. When speakers cancel or are unable to present Stanley jumps in to present his journey of faith and recovery.
Meeting with Stanley has always been something our clients enjoy. As expressed by one of our recent clients, “Talking to Stanley is like talking to a close friend.”
