To kick off Volunteer Appreciation Week, we are excited to celebrate Nolan Manning as our Volunteer of the Year. At our Volunteer Appreciation Night on April 4, we were proud to honor Nolan with this award for his incredible dedication to youth and families in crisis across the nation.
“The opportunity to impact people’s lives through genuine connections keeps me coming back. Each shift humbles me and puts my own problems in perspective, and the camaraderie with other volunteers is a bonus to the entire experience.” – Nolan Manning
When Chicago faced the Polar Vortex with subzero weather, Nolan still came in to our crisis services center to provide critical support to youth in need. His compassion and empathy provides each person who connects with him on the lines a safe place to explore the issues they face whether it be bullying, abuse, or homelessness. Nolan was even recently featured in the Lake View Patch!
