Dominican Volunteers USA: ‘Communities, Both Big and Small’

Jake Moran

Our latest blog post comes from Dominican Volunteer Jake Moran. Jake serves at Sarah’s Inn, a support center for survivors of domestic violence in Chicago, Illinois. Jake reflects on his communities both near and far. This includes his House of Connections community, shared with fellow DV Lacey Green and Dominican Sisters Marilyn Derr and Bernadine Karge. Thank you, Jake, for being an integral part of our Dominican Volunteers USA community.

“We come from different parts of the country, different religious upbringings, different traditions, different house practices . . . and, yet, we have merged all of our differences to make this wonderful community. I would even venture to say that the differences between us are refreshing and bring value to our community.”
