HOPE for Washington County, Oklahoma
I love working at Concern because I get to exercise my passion for putting all the numbers where they belong. I also have the pleasure of going home knowing that I am part of a great mission. There's no better feeling! When I'm not at work you'll find me playing with my wonderful children (Kennedy and Jace), attending their many sporting and school events.
Monetary contributions are appreciated. Families also benefit greatly from your donation of food, personal/hygiene items and toys for our birthday bags.

those in need
The Mission of Churches United for Community CONCERN is to provide compassionate support to individuals and families who lack resources for food, early childhood education, and for those who are unable to manage their finances.
CONCERN clients have frequently been forced to seek help by unexpected circumstances such as job loss, illness, or family conflict. CONCERN strives to provide support with compassion and dignity.
I enjoy working at Concern because I can assist with filling basic needs for many people in our community. I enjoy all the dedicated, hard working volunteers who make my job work. When I'm not at work you'll find me at a grandkid's sporting event, sitting at my sewing machine making a quilt, fishing for crappie or gardening. On occasion I love to go Junking. I am fascinated by the history of my past found in the antique stores waiting for someone to buy the item to take home and use it as a decorator piece!
Working at CONCERN offers the opportunity and challenge to be a servant leader. This position requires compassion, empathy, sometimes sympathy and always a welcoming, non-judgmental approach. Another plus is that no one day at Concern is like another. It is my good fortune to work with not only a staff which is top notch but also the most caring, compassionate group of volunteers you will ever find. When I am not at work you will probably find me watching one or more of my grandchildren play basketball or baseball, compete at a bowling tournament, or sing or dance at a recital. Those are my happiest moments.
