“I grew up in a home where I witnessed domestic violence as a young child. Years later, my mother started volunteering at a local shelter leading group sessions for battered women. As an adult, I decided to follow in my mother’s footsteps and began to volunteer with Live Violence Free. I took the crisis intervention class and before long started to take calls on the crisis phone. I’ve answered crisis calls for many years now and the reward of helping these victims in their time of need is something I could not have imagined.”
Star Volunteer of the Month
Kathy Pappis has been a dedicated volunteer for Live Violence Free for over two years now. Kathy loves working with youth and empowering others. We are very fortunate to have her.
“I at one time in my young life needed help but unfortunately, there weren’t any such services available. I am blessed to be at a place in my life where I can volunteer with such an amazing organization and working alongside so many dedicated individuals.” – Kathy
