Meet Lana Kofman, Manager of Volunteer Services at JewishCare.
Lana has been with JewishCare for 28 years as a staff member and prior to that 2 years as a volunteer and has been instrumental and pivotal to the development of JewishCare’s army of volunteers. Greeting everyone with a smile, she is often called upon to liaise with clients who are Russian speakers. Her main achievement is that she has recruited Russian speakers as volunteers though it is absolutely not within the culture of the former USSR residents.
“Every day I come to work is different with another challenge or opportunity. I am a very lucky person as I work with amazing people who make such a difference in the lives of other members of their community. As volunteers, not only do they give of their time but they give a little piece of their heart. For me this is both motivating and inspiring. I manage upwards of 500 volunteers but we always have room for more people to be involved in our community.”says Lana.
