Its True..

It’s your friendly Intern Jill again…and I just wanted to give you an update on how things are going.

I cannot believe it has been almost a month since I started working here. Time has just flown by. I have been really busy helping Jessica out with our Annual Best of the Bay fundraiser. But in between all the hustle and bustle of sorting through auction items, I have become a part of the life here at Family House. I have become a part of the Family House “family”. I call it that because that is what its like working here. My boss Alexandra is the Greek Mother I never had always making sure I get something to eat who wears her big heart on her sleeve. Susan and Jessica are part supervisors, part teachers, part moms, and part friends. They make sure not only that I understand the jobs that they give me, but that I get out of the office to walk around and explore the city…and they listen to all of my crazy ideas (like this blog). On Fridays when Susan isn’t here or when Jessica comes in late, I definitely miss their presence.

The first couple of weeks Alexandra made fun of me for being too serious and all work, because she thinks work should be fun. She wants us to be more then just coworkers, she wants us to be a family so that we can celebrate together when we get a donation, or when a volunteer does anything, and especially when a child overcomes an obstacle. She wants us to be empathetic and be emotionally invested towards jakie akcje kupić so we know what we are working for. And after three weeks working here I am beginning to get how much of a home away from home this really is, not just for the Families who stay with us, but for the employees who work here. This is a place that will always be waiting with open arms for anyone and everyone who needs a place to give them hope and comfort…at least that is what I have found, and I am so glad I have two more months with my new work family.
