The 2017 Beaufort County Senior Leadership Program continued to focus on building community appreciation with a recent session held Wednesday, March 1 about human services and volunteering.

Representatives from Beaufort County’s key human services organizations that seek to assist children and adults with the basic needs of shelter, food and education spoke to the class with an emphasis on groups needing community volunteers.   

Fred Leyda, the director of the Beaufort County Alliance for Human Services, kicked off the meeting and tied the threads of the conversation together all day long.   

James Glasson, USCB Human Services specialist, engaged the group in activities that demonstrated that service organizations have to work together to build a strong and caring community.    

The day was packed with speakers from Read Indeed, Beaufort County Disabilities and Special Needs, Habitat for Humanity, Second Helpings, St. Francis Center, Help of Beaufort, Hopeful Horizons, Family Promise, 100 Women Who Care and the United Way.
