Congrats to Caryn Altman for being honored as an outstanding community volunteer!
Nominating Organization: WISEPlace
Honoree Category: Human & Community
Why Nominated: Caryn has become an increasingly important member of the WISEPlace family over the last several years. She started out 5 years ago by introducing the Young Philanthropist Group of the Jewish Board of Education to WISEPlace by doing special projects for us. This group has also donated support funding to WISEPlace. From there she added her expertise to our Employment Group for those looking for a job and to our Life-Skills Classes. Caryn continues in that capacity and now also acts as the counselor for our internal internship program for women who have a particularly difficult time finding employment. Further she plans and facilitates life-skills classes for our second stage program, Positive Step. For 2 years Caryn has spearheaded a project by the Jewish Community Cares arm of the Jewish Community Foundation of Orange County entitled “Its All About You.” This very special event was covered by the Orange County Register and is a day of pampering for residents of WISEPlace and other shelter programs. Caryn also has offered very personal support to WISEPlace staff. Caryn is an extraordinary volunteer with a huge heart for those in need. We are honored to have Caryn Altman on our team.
