Stories from the Basement

Stories from the Basement: May 2017

by Donna Clark RN, Director

In September we were blessed to have a Social Work Intern form Salisbury University join us for her final experience in her Bachelor’s Degree education. When she started she was “like a deer in the headlights” as our clients streamed through the office. Over the months she grew to be a strong compassionate counselor who tried her best to meet the needs of the people she interviewed.

Today the clients ask for her by name, knowing that she will take all the time needed to help them and be more patient than the rest of us. We have watched her develop her interviewing skills and her ability to work with difficult people. She has a heart as big as the all outdoors and will do anything in her power to help those in need. When the ones with the really sad stories leave the office she has tears in her eyes. She’s a single mom raising a 8 year old son and is as independent as anyone can be. She has faced many difficult obstacles in the past year including the death of her fiancée, a car accident, and several other issues.

God creates each of us for His purposes and in her case He has great plans. She hopes to go on for her Masters and continue her education. We wish her all of God’s blessings and hope you will keep her in your prayers.

Matthew 25: 14 – 30
