Navigator: Mary Daman

I am retired and doing volunteer work both with RISE and its affiliates as well as another agency.
I was married and have four adult children, 2 grandchildren as well as 2 great-grandkids.  All are living in Iowa with the exception of a daughter in San Francisco.
I attend church in the downtown area.  It’s a connection that goes back to my early days of moving to CR.
My work background includes office, transportation, retail and human service experience.
I went back to school late in life and feel that I am now able to use that training while doing the volunteer work that I do, in a variety of ways.
I find RISE a good match for me; and am impressed with the number of highly trained and qualified people who also volunteer here that offer support to the participants through their time and talents. I do feel fortunate to be included in this wonderful group of people.
