"We rely on our dedicated volunteers to help with our helpline, support groups, children's groups, committee work, court accompaniment and everything in between," said Casey Faulkingham, the Community Response Team Leader.  "Our community members and volunteers are some of our most important resources. We simply could not do this work without them."
