Here for Hampden, Here for Good
For more than 25 years, the Center’s programs and services have been a lifeline for individuals and families in Hampden. The relationships we develop here instill purpose, confidence, and hope in one another — the building blocks of change and growth.
Volunteer Spotlight - Zach
Zach is a post-bac researcher at the Nation Institute for Drug Abuse (NIDA). Zach started as a volunteer with the After-School Enrichment Program last fall. He quickly jumped right into and connected with our young people. Zach helped animate a young person’s puppet show and assisted as they turned their brainstorming into writing. He is great at guiding young people through the creative process. He is patient and leaves room for independence and growth. Zach loves jumping right into learning and play.
