Chrissy

Recognizing Chrissy:
The Longest-Standing Camp Erin LA Volunteer! 11 Years!

Q: How did you learn about OUR HOUSE?
A: I learned of OUR HOUSE from a dear friend and former volunteer, Amanda Mahoney who introduced me to the concept of grief support. Once I completed the training and began co-leading my first group, I was hooked. My love and support for OUR HOUSE only increased with the addition of Camp Erin.

Q: Why do you continue to volunteer at Camp Erin?
A: Providing these children the tools to help them navigate their individual grief journeys gives me such joy. As I witness their positive transformations, I feel such such a sense of accomplishment which is deeply rewarding. Camp Erin enriches the lives of Los Angeles’s children who might not have access to any other grief support.

Q: In honor of our 25th anniversary, what were you doing when you were 25?
A: I was working at an investment firm in Atlanta, Georgia, while learning the ropes of living in a big city, playing tons of tennis, and volunteering at Egleston Children’s Hospital.

“My experience as a volunteer for Camp Erin L.A. was completely amazing! I never knew so much love and understanding was out there for grieving children. Camp Erin is run with great integrity, compassion, and expertise. As a volunteer I felt so welcomed and cared for. I definitely will be volunteering again in the future!” – Debbie, Camp Erin Volunteer

“If you are looking for a volunteer experience working directly with others, this is one of the most valuable ways to make a difference. The opportunity to work with grieving adults and help bring hope to their lives is one of the deepest and most valuable experiences that I have ever encountered.” – Susan, OUR HOUSE Group Leader

“THE CLOSING SQUEEZE”

Children’s groups always end with a ritual – a gentle squeeze of friendship and support. 

Group members stand in a circle, with hands crossed and held in front of them, and the squeeze travels around the circle one person at a time.

The squeeze is in recognition of the thoughts and feelings shared in group and a way of sending each other support.
