Sforza, a regular volunteer at The Main Place, can be found helping out in the Main Place kitchen every Wednesday, organizing the pantry, prepping and clean up as well as serving the daily noon time meal.
“Its a good experience, I love working with people. When I started I was very shy and I can open up to people now”.
Sforza joined the Wellness Warriors in 2009 and through daily exercise and eating healthy she went from over 200 pounds to her present weight, which she has been able to maintain through simple healthy lifestyle changes learned at the Main Place groups and classes.
Volunteers at The Main Place are what makes it feel like a family to the staff and clients — and Sforza has given her special touch to the peer support aspect.
