Testimonies from our volunteers:
“What a gift it is to volunteer with Transform Burien. Looking for ways to ease homelessness, my son and I put our hands to work in the clothing bank. We have come to know many of the people who visit us. They come to Transform Burien for fundamental basics, like food and clothes. They leave with more than these essentials. Warm smiles, friendly conversations, and a helping of love are part of the package, too. It’s been rewarding to get to know the individuals we serve. Kind, helpful, gracious, funny, colorful, smart, creative people – often troubled or in a low spot in their lives. On certain days, special services are available here including mobile medical help, veterinary services, housing assistance, showers, and more. The workers at Transform Burien are amazing, dedicated people who create a warm and welcoming environment and have a heart for service. I learn from them at every crossing. Good things happen here. God is at work in this place. I’m so thankful to be a small part of it.”
“It’s been a true blessing for me to volunteer with Transform Burien. Valuable opportunities to meet the needs of others are plentiful here – whether it’s offering our guests fresh groceries, a hot meal, some new clothes, essential services, or even just a kind word. Watching the efforts of each volunteer add up into something larger, something that helps change the lives of those in need, is incredible. I am so grateful for what Jesus is accomplishing in our community through this organization.”
“I’ve been working with Transform Burien for seven years. God brought me here. My favorite thing about serving with this organization is the people who come to us. They are family to me. And, for many, we are their family. Families take care of each other. They help keep me clean and sober. Among the most important things we give to our guests here at Transform Burien are love and hands-on caring. We want each individual to know they are loved. They don’t always hear it in other places, so they will hear it from me every time I get a chance.”
In memory of Charlotte Berg, who faithfully served Transform Burien and her community for many years.
