Hello, how are you?

Last year I was introduced to Harcourt House and after four short months of employment, I was in love! I was able to work in a creative space, with warm and engaging co-workers (now friends), I was surrounded by beautiful art, amazing volunteers and felt lucky that I was able to become part of a community that fostered sharing,, creation, collaboration and respect. Now, after rubbing my eyes, stretching my arms and emerging from the hibernation of design school… I’m back!

And I’m excited! Like, really, truly, kid-in-a-candy-store excited to be back!

So that means all of you wonderful volunteers will be hearing from me quite a bit over the summer. We’ve got exciting things happening! As always, we’ll be relying on the community’s dedicated support to make these events a success. So in advance, thank you all for your continued awesomeness!

If you haven’t volunteered with Harcourt House before and would like to become more involved, you can email me at and I will happily add you to the volunteer list.

Warmth and Happiness,
