Florence M-M'CarthyISC’s Volunteer of the Month is Florence M-M’Carthy.  Florence signed up to be a volunteer in December 2012 when she moved to Calgary from Ontario with her husband and two children.  She has already contributed over 100 hours!  Recently, Florence has been volunteering with administration duties with of our Men’s Program. The Men’s Program provides an opportunity for immigrant and refugee men to meet and work together in a group setting.

Florence’s passion to learn is reflected in not only her Bachelor of Arts Degree but also her Certificate in Refugee & Forced Migration Issues, as well as Immigration Practitioner Certificate. Her experience of working as a settlement counselor for the past nine years has given her further insight into the settlement issues and barriers faced by the immigrant and refugee communities.

Florence said that “My commitment to make a difference in the lives of people and  above all respect for humanity has driven me to learn more through completion of various  certificate courses and  workshops  related to serving immigrants and refugees”. 

Florence is very well organized and she is very quick learner. She is patient person and has a great eye for details.  She has many great ideas and she is very respectful when dealing with clients.  

Florence’s standards of excellence are reflected in her philosophy “Hope and possibilities is a reality, respect and social justice for all, perseverance against all odds, challenges are meant to be overcome”

Thank you Florence for being a part of ISC’s volunteer team!
