March was officially National Social Work Month!
We want to extend our sincere congratulations the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga for its recent Master of Social Work program accreditation.  We were delighted to attend the UTC social work field fair, offering both undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to explore the many agencies in the Chattanooga area doing wonderful work to make positive changes.  We were pleased to meet with some of these students and speak with them about potential involvement with our Hospitality at Home program and future development.  We are so happy to be involved in a community with so much great work going on.

Volunteer Corner
"Be faithful in small things for it is in them that your strength lies"
-Saint Teresa of Calcutta

Independence and confidence as we move around our homes is something we all value. This is why projects that ensure the safety and security of our HAH participants' homes, such as this recent project to secure grip strips on a participant's outside walkway, are so important to us.  We are dedicated to providing wraparound supportive services for our participants that help them continue to have agency and independence in their lives.  
We are always looking for dedicated volunteers to help us conduct home visits, make reassurance phone calls, carry out home safety and improvement projects, and recognize holidays and life celebrations for our participants.  Our program provides ample volunteer support and flexibility, and we are happy to utilize the skills and interests of a diverse crowd of volunteers.  Come share your passion with us and help to enrich the life of an older adult in our community!
