Throughout the years, Youth Challenge of CT has had a number of UAServe volunteers serve in their residential program. Their program’s mission is to help people with life controlling problems, such as substance abuse, find drug free, productive and meaningful lives. Their Executive Director, Rev. Esther Gonzales-Torres, has this to say about the three UAServe volunteers who are currently serving:

Joe Bittner, Cindy Carlson and Megan Mooney faithfully serve and support Youth Challenge with such love and care. Joe meets with our clients individually and in small groups to encourage and support their spiritual growth. Cindy and Megan serve in our renovated kitchen with food prep, serving meals and cleaning up. They support staff and clients that work in the kitchen with a wonderful spirit and desire to help. We are grateful for our UA volunteers, they improve and bless our program so much.

I really enjoy working with Elliot in the kitchen and I love serving/talking/encouraging the residents. It just feels good to be able to help on times like these. I get so much more than I give so thank you for having me and thanks for all you do for the community.
