The Foundation for the Volunteers is the support system that spans from one month to the entire summer to ensure the family visits are successful. Commitments here are more than one weekend.
Monthly Coordinator: Responsible for up to eight families visiting in a month. When the opportunity comes for the "front line" to volunteer, the monthly coordinator ensures every family visiting is assigned a greeter, has sufficient meal prepares and a photographer, and when applicable a boat captain. All are very adaptable as life sometimes gets in the way, and replacements are needed at the last minute in the front line.
Monthly coordinators have served as front line volunteers prior to their present role.
