Hi, I'm Sharon Wilson Geno, the chief operating officer of Volunteers of America National Services. I am so excited to celebrate with you our recent designation as a great place to work. When I came to Volunteers of America National Services about three and a half years ago, I knew it was going to be good, but I had no idea how great it would be to work with our tremendous team here and serve our amazing residents and communities across the country.

I've had a chance over the last couple of days to read many of the comments that you provided on your survey, and I want to thank you for your time and effort. The number one reason you think Volunteers of America National Services is a great place to work is your tremendous and amazing commitment to our residents. Thank you for that, and I also wanted to thank our team mates. We asked them to provide videos and tell us a little bit more about why they think Volunteers of America National Services is a great place to work. I hope you enjoy them.
