Coordinates requests for help from members and friends of QUUF.
There is great personal satisfaction in helping others, but often the aid we offer is through an organization and the results are distant and unseen. Members of the HRMC not only see their work’s impact on others’ lives but find that they are helping old friends and making new ones. Often the recipients are older members of our congregation who have simple needs that can be frustrating to them but are within our skillset.
The chair must be a good and empathetic listener to people needing help but reluctant to ask for it. Most important, the chair must determine what jobs the HRMC can and should do. The members of the HRMC need not be skilled, only willing, though it is often surprising (and gratifying) to discover the range of expertise we have in our group.
The present chair, David Rymph, who founded the HRMC, will train and advise his replacement.
