On Tuesday, July 25th, a few members of the IndyBar Health Law and Life Sciences Executive Committee volunteered at the Coburn Place. To those who are not familiar with the Coburn Place, it’s an incredible organization that provides transitional housing to survivors of domestic violence. However, the Coburn Place provides more than just shelter. It also provides supportive services for families to get back on their feet.
Julie Henson, the Community Engagement Director at the Coburn Place, was gracious enough to provide us with a tour of the facility. She informed us that the building used to be a school, and once you enter the hallways, you get that elementary school feeling! The staff there was wonderful and the place had such a great energy. Because we had a small group, our volunteer project was to clean and organize one of their storage closets.
We were so happy to help with any project! I now have a new charity to support and I look forward to volunteering with the Coburn Place again. To learn more about the Coburn Place, check out their website.
