Helen Meatte

Volunteer

Helen has been a cherished volunteer with AWAHIH. As a retired art educator, Helen views AWAHIH as an extension of her jobs mission of creating "a positive and enriching experience where no one felt they had failed and were able to create a form of immortality in the art they produced." Her favorite part of volunteering with AWAHIH is observing patients and their families as they "forget momentarily where they are as they escape to another plane of existence that is part of making something with one's hands". We appreciate all of Helen's time, energy, and gentle approach to providing fine art sessions to patients and their families!
