Meet JOURNEYS Josie, a new addition to our staff! Taking a cue from her distant cousin, Flat Stanley, JOURNEYS Josie, or “JJ,” if you prefer, is excited to explore and learn about everything we do here, from open to close to special events!
JJ’s first day was spent at the front desk of the HOPE Center shadowing our volunteers. She got acquainted with our client intake process, greeting everyone who walked in the door and offering a warm welcome. She even got to meet our resident reptile, Myrtle, who was extremely excited to meet someone at JOURNEYS closer to her own size.
JJ loved interacting with clients as well as the volunteers and other JOURNEYS staff. The most difficult part of her day, she said, was handling the paperwork, since it’s difficult to handle paper when you have paper thumbs – a bit slippery!
We’ll post JJ’s continued adventures every other week. We’d love it if you designed and shared your own JOURNEYS helper like JOURNEYS Josie, so you can find a template on our website for download. Take a picture of your creation and share it on social media. You can tag us on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, or you can use the hashtag #journeysjosie.
We're so excited to have Josie on the team!
