Volunteer Spotlight: Libby Chambers

We are excited to announce that our July Volunteer of the Month is Libby Chambers! Libby discovered LPCS through a posting on VolunteerMatch.com and attended our June volunteer orientation. She immediately jumped into being a front desk volunteer and has quickly become one of the Guest’s favorite front desk volunteers. When she isn’t sharing stories of her cat, Boozer, she is giving them advice and encouraging them as they accomplish their goals. Libby has also started staying for dinner, where she gets the chance to sit down and really interact with the Guests. After her first dinner, she shared with us how listening to the Guests refer to LPCS as the “condominium of shelters” was both inspirational and humbling, leaving her with a different perspective on her life. When Libby isn’t at the front desk, you can find her exploring the city with friends, baby-sitting and of course, hanging out with Boozer the Cat.
