Daniel Rodgers, A Big Part of our Community
The success for April 2016 is Daniel Rodgers. Daniel relocated to Southern Indiana from Chicago, Illinois. Moving to New Albany was a big change for him. He did not have any family or friends in our community. He had no automobile to get around and was faced with not being able to work. He had worked his whole life. Daniel had several surgeries which left him feeling isolated. He started reading the “NAHA Neighborhoods” monthly newsletter and learned about the Family Self-Sufficiency Program. He called and offered to volunteer for the FSS office. That was 5 months ago and boredom flew out the window quickly! Daniel is scheduled once a week, but is usually in the office or at workshops several times a week. He helps with clerical, cooking, sorting donations and just about anything else we need help from him to do! Daniel is a joy and pleasure to have here at FSS. He has become a big part of the FSS office. Willa Banet and Toni Powers work alongside Daniel and affectionately refer to him as their Teddy Bear! Daniel has become a big part of our community and he always has a big smile and a kind, giving heart to share with our community! If you stop in the FSS office chances are you will run into Daniel.
