Volunteer of the Month: May


This month we are proud to announce our wonderful volunteer extraordinaire, Rachael Hunsucker!

Rachael has been a hard working volunteer, part of a Volunteer Coordinating team for Journey Church and our Saturday Day Center Intern since she began supporting Family Promise in 2010! Whew! Talk about an all-around volunteer.

Volunteer Coordinator Katy Dolesh from Journey Church nominated Rachael for this award. Katy said, “Rachael Hunsucker is the best volunteer ever! She does everything and is always willing to do more and is flexible and available and cheerful.”

Rachael is flexible, dependable and willing to do whatever it takes to make sure that our families succeed. She volunteers each Saturday at our Day Center to spend all day with our families. She helps them plan family friendly, low cost activities in Bozeman.
