I have been volunteering with Stand By Me for five years. I heard about the organization from a friend and I love the idea of helping somebody else. When you go to a patient’s house and he smiles at you, it’s worth everything. I saw a patient in the market and she said out loud that this organization gives her life and strength. It is holy work with a lot of patience, love and endless giving.


We are one big family and we all need each other. Stand By Me provides that human touch and compassion. It is in this way that we strengthen our community and reach towards recovery.
