Have you ever volunteered before? In what way? (Tutoring, Kids, Humanitarian, Cleanup, Nature, Animals) Still doing so?

Yes, I used to belong to an organization called Sertoma which helps children and adults with hearing problems.

What do a person's day-to-day actions REALLY say about them? What do the words MORAL FIBER mean to you? Tell us what you think...

I beleive that respect and being non-judgemental toward people are very important. Moral fiber means to me treating people with respect and trying to do the right thing.

Are you new to Chicago? Might you need or can you help carpool? As a fun community of members, transport to non-city events never ends up a problem!

I have lived in the Chicago area all my life. I made need some help with transportion as I have back problems.

Occasionally outside groups contact us looking for help. Is there a specific type (animals, kids, etc) of volunteering you would like us to keep you mind for in these situations?

Helping out with senior citizens, I took care of my mother for six months after she suffered a breakdown after my aunt ( her sister) died suddenly. She developed severe dementia. She died two years ago. Helping battered women. I was married to an abusive husband. It was primarily terrible verbal abuse and so called low level physical violence. Parents of special needs children. I have a son who has apraxia which means he does not have speech. He currently lives in Little City and has his own supervised apartment there.

Where did you hear about our group? A Current Member (who)? Meetup link/email? Flier? Speech? Facebook? Other? (Specific answers will help us & the number we reach out to *GROW* :)

I belong to a pain management meetup group and receive emails on various meetups.
