In the spotlight this week is Steve Fano, a volunteer at Affirmations since 2014. He is one of many volunteers the community center is incredibly fortunate to have the support of. Fano works throughout Affirmations at the Welcome & Resource Desk, and assists with youth programming. Like many other volunteers, Fano helps out in the Bayard Rustin Media Center and contributes his time during special events. Read a little more about his deep commitment to volunteering at Affirmations.

Why are you involved in volunteering at Affirmations?
Before volunteering, Affirmations was a place I went to for support and services. It helped me to gradually learn to accept and love myself during a difficult period prior to coming out. Volunteering is a great opportunity to give back.

Why do you enjoy about volunteering?
It’s all about giving back to the community. Plus, it keeps me connected to our great community – something that helps me cope during this uncertain and worrisome poltical climate.
