Rosa Ortiz - Volunteer of the Year
Rosa Ortiz Named 2011 NEWS Volunteer of the Year
NEWS is proud to announce that Rosa Cruz has been selected as Volunteer of the Year. Rosa is a teacher at Napa Valley Language Academy, but still found 700 hours in the past year to volunteer for NEWS! She has been a Domestic Violence Response Team volunteer since 2008, and has also volunteered answering the crisis line at the emergency shelter. Recently, she started providing homework help for the children living at the shelter, and has become a NEWS intern facilitating support groups for children exposed to domestic violence. Thank you so much, Rosa. Congratulations!Photo: Alejandra Mendieta-Bedolla, DV Response Team Coord, presents Rosa Ortiz with the 2011 Volunteer of the Year award.
