Meet our Volunteer of the Month, Heather Barriere!

“In Heather’s final Next Step group, some of the other participants shared that she was ultimately the reason they decided to join the Next Step Program. Heather was up at Maggie’s, doing Front Desk, volunteering often, and was super active and involved around the house. She would talk about the program, and they could see the magic and changes happening in her life. She is such an inspiration of the promises coming alive.”

– Kelsey Amos, Next Step Program Coordinator

Heather + The Magdalen House = 💚

Started volunteering:

June 2021

Has donated a total of:

305 hours in only 4 months! This is valued at $8,705 for our organization, meaning Heather has helped put six woman through our two-week First Step program! Outstanding!

You can usually find her:

Hosting one of our virtual meetings or assisting our First Step staff with inventory.

I’ve never seen her without:

A kind smile and sparkling eyes!

One time she:

Took a carload of clothing donations to Trusted World, one of our Community Partners!

Our favorite thing about her is:

How she shows up for her children. Heather is such a great mother and values the relationships that have been restored.

The Magdalen House wouldn’t be the same without her because:

She helps when and where she is needed, no questions asked! She’s taken on one of our most important tasks, inventory, and she has been a tremendous help!


If you’d like to support our mission through volunteering, we’d love to have you!
