I wanted to say “Thank You!” to all of you that have visited our website! Our numbers are growing and that makes my heart sing! I hope you will help me spread the word that there is a website that works hard to help us find opportunities, events, and services that are affordable. We might be less privileged, but we are not less important.
Our Partners are people that believe in us and what our website provides. I have volunteered for Salem For All for over 2 years. It has opened up a world of possibilities for me. Some of our Partners offer volunteer opportunities. Check them out because you never know where they might lead you.
I want to Thank You!! There are alot of you out there that have heard about our website. Michael and I (Deb the data girl) work really hard to find opportunities from our partners that serves to help the less fortunate in our community. Have you seen the calender? I fill it with events for a quick referance, sort of a " month at a glance". Pretty cool huh?
As usual I welcome your ideas and thoughts. After all we wouldn't exist without you!! We are here to help and to give you a hand up!
This is Deb and that "data entry" girl. I wanted to start a blog so I could express how much I appreciate what our Partners have so graciously done to help those of us that are less fortunate. I say us because I am one of us.
Here is my story; In October of 2014 I was diagnosed with Hypokalemia and put in the hospital for 10 days. I have since then been hospitalized many times. Due to the diagnosis I have not been able to work and was evicted from my apartment. I went to Grace House which is a transitional shelter for women for 8 months.
There is where I met Michael Mann and he gave me an opportunity to train myself to be able to do website maintenance for an amazing website called "Salem for All." I had been going to college to get my Associates Degree at Chemeketa Community College and was 4 months shy of my degree when I was diagnosed.
How lucky am I to be the one who gets to put the "Opportunities" on the website for all of us? Michael's foresight, the founder of "Salem for All" has given us a chance to experience cultural, educational, fun, lessons, entertainment, and tools to have and use for life.
One of the reasons I wanted to start a blog was so I could maybe hear back from you with ideas, thoughts, feedback, and experiences.
I hope to hear from you!
