Engaged in Our Local Community
Kristin Ferge, Chief Financial Officer
"Walking in, I thought, 'I have no idea what I'm going to be doing or what I should say or anything like that,' so it was kind of nerve-racking," said Jane Florence, DSHA '19, who served at the Gables of Germantown for her volunteer program. "When I was assigned there, I knew that this is what God wanted for me and where God needed me, and that it was going to be a good experience no matter what."
Engagement in the local community is one of the cornerstones here at Capri and it can be seen by the various ways we welcome volunteers into our communities and our employees' and residents' commitments to volunteering both at Capri and outside opportunities.
This year, Capri partnered with Divine Savior Holy Angels (DSHA) and Marquette University High School to host student volunteers for two full weeks. Instead of attending classes, these students volunteered in our communities. The experience these students had along with the joy our residents felt in interacting with them is something neither of them will ever forget! Engaging in your local community not only provides value to those you serve, but also provides meaningful rewards in return. Get involved!
