This month we chat with Barb, who started a few months ago as one of our Community Outreach Advocates. She is a bilingual service provider currently splitting her time between our Redmond and Bend walk-in sites.
A little about her: Barb is a single mom of one beautiful girl, she loves animals, canning, gardening and most any adventure involving the outdoors.
Fun fact: Barb loves our seasonal ever-changing weather in Bend, but will also wear flip flops during our snowy weather! 🤣
What brought Barb to Thrive? A passion for helping people that feel stuck trying to help themselves. Lending a helping hand and a listening ear to those in need! The people and volunteers that work at Thrive are one of the best things about working for this organization, there are never dumb questions and everyone learns from each other!
Thank you so much for your compassionate, hard work with our community, Barb!
