Join us in celebrating, Cat. She's our volunteer of the year!
Catina Powell, “Cat”, came to The Way Station December 4, 2015, as a reluctant, somewhat frightened participant in the Jobs and Family Services’ Work Experience Program. Since that tentative beginning she has become the consummate example of The Way Station’s goal for every person who comes voluntarily or is sent to The Way Station.
Cat is the epitome of our Mission Statement, “Expressing the compassion of Jesus in practical ways.”
Her volunteer work primarily involves serving as the statistical recording secretary, but she is often called on to handle other issues in the office and thrift store. Cat also serves as the coordinator of the weekly God study, a study which focuses on practical guidance from the Bible.
Her pleasant personality and quiet humility have stolen the hearts of her co-workers and The Way Station visitors with whom she interacts.
In 2016 Cat graduated from The Way Station’s /Jobs: Ready-Set-Go program/. That led her to a variety of positions. She currently works for Market Source in Boardman, an assignment which provides income to the home yet allows time for her to volunteer at The Way Station
With the encouragement of Carla Sukosd and Teresa Welton, Cat began a weight loss effort this year. To date she has lost 106 pounds. Well done!
Her comments about volunteering reveal her gratitude to The Way Station and God:
“I get to be a part of so many lives at The Way Station.
“Whatever good is happening it’s not me, the thanks and praise goes to God. I love this place and know God wants me here.”
Thank you Cat!
