Although volunteers will no longer be making the actual visits, you are still a very important part of the process. We all need to act like concierges in our own communities by befriending, connecting and referring our friends and new families to familiar or favorite resources. Our St. Louis community does this well and it is important to maintain and nourish this culture of Peer Concierges.
It takes a village.
As a peer concierge, you may be paired with a new family based on similar characteristics, situations or circumstances. By signing up, I will be able to better serve new families by identifying those of you that would make the best connection. I will be in touch with each of you to get to know you better. I will notify you prior to any pairing. If you are interested in making a connection, I will share contact information between the parties and the rest is up to you.
Making new friends in St. Louis is not always easy. As the concierge, I would like to make it easier.
