Below is Eden Housing's Volunteer of the Month

Name: Josh Roth

Property: Warner Creek, Novato, CA

Why did you chose to volunteer with Eden Housing? My freshman year some of us went on a service trip. I really enjoyed volunteering there for my first time and had always wanted to come back and volunteer again.

What have you done as a volunteer?  Please describe your role and what you have worked on. I really do anything that's needed. I have passed out flyers and delivered frozen meals to residents, cleaned up the facility, and helped donate extra food to Homeward Bound.

What have you learned through your volunteer experience?  Have there been any surprises? I have learned how good it feels to be able to make a difference in someone's life. I was surprised by how friendly the residents are. They are always thanking me and open to having conversations with me.

What do you like best about volunteering with Eden Housing? I like the feeling of knowing that I am making a difference in people's lives. Of course having someone there like Ms. Hamilton to learn from and see how she interacts with and helps residents is priceless.

Are there any tips that you would share for someone else who is considering volunteering? Until you volunteer you won't know how good it feels to help those who are in need. Just go for it and volunteer anyplace where you think you can help and you will most likely end up going back again and again.

Tell us something we may not know about you. Any interesting facts you’d like to share about your life? I attend Marin Catholic, run track, and play baseball. I am a huge Giants fan and love to listen to their games on the radio.
