Regular Meeting – Naomi Smits, Austin Angels
August 22, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
This week, our speaker will be Naomi Smits with Austin Angels.
After earning her BA in Interdisciplinary Studies in May 2018, Naomi decided to seek an internship to get practical work experience after learning about Austin Angels on social media. She worked as a case management intern during the fall 2018 semester then joined the Austin Angels full-time staff in December 2018. The mission of Austin Angels and the people she gets to work with keep Naomi excited about her job and working with youth in the Dare to Dream Mentoring program. Why she chooses to work for Austin Angels: ” In all I do, what is most important is to serve, cultivate hope, and strengthen love for others. Austin Angels is brining that kind of support to those in foster care everyday!”
The mission of Austin Angels is to walk alongside children in the foster care system, as well as their caretakers, by offering consistent support through intentional giving, relationship building and mentorship.
Naomi will be speaking about Austin Angels and how to get involved to help foster care children in need.
