3ABF formulated a volunteer-based aftercare team in 2016 to interface with bereaved families in need Over the past year after providing volunteer peer support meetings we realized that there was a need to revisit the structure of the After Care Team Volunteer Program: 1 Volunteers will be encouraged to work 3 months then take a break 2 The break will allow the volunteers to refresh and restore their spirits 3 We are also realizing the importance of small and meaningful activities to show our appreciation for our volunteers 4 Cultivate a Care Team of 15 Core Volunteers with rotation schedules, so there will be 10 active Care Team Core Volunteers at all times 5 Give Care Team Volunteers opportunities for peer support meetings, so they can share their concerns and challenges
