“I’m still thinking about the session last week and have come back many times to a “why” statement which is helping put some things into perspective at BFO. I think it’s really going to help provide us with some direction both with our volunteers and the members we serve. Sometimes we just need to be reminded what we’re actually trying to do here!


I have also many times reflected on rescuing people vs supporting from a place of love with respect to motivation of our volunteers. It’s really put some things into perspective for us.

So I guess I’m just wanting to say thank you!”
