"Never in my life have I felt so welcome, comforted, and taken care of. The volunteer literally took care of me. She sat me down, made me coffee, made sure I had plenty of plush towels and toiletries; you name it. She asked about my daughter and made me feel better about the situation. Being a new mom, I could not have been any more grateful."
