Archway Friends and Volunteers share their stories

Everyone who is involved with Archway gets something different from the experience: friendship, fun, greater self-confidence, a sense of belonging, a chance to meet new people or to help others.

We asked our Friends and Volunteers to share what Archway means to them. Here are some of their stories...

Building friendships at Archway

"I think everyone being in the same boat makes it easier to talk to people ‘cause you know that they are thinking basically the same as you. It’s reassuring."
