DWC Spotlights Cooking Club Leader Lisa Napoli


Volunteering at DWC is a great experience that is fun and rewarding, but it also builds community, and has a great impact on the women the Center serves.

Lisa Napoli is a DWC Volunteer Cooking Club Leader who comes monthly with a group of her friends and colleagues to cook a healthy meal from scratch for 150 women.

DWC was recently awarded the Deutsch Foundation's 2013 HALO Award in recognition of Lisa's volunteer leadership, and of our volunteer program.

Lisa has designated her HALO Award to establish a Case Management Urgent Need Fund to support DWC's case management team as they work with women to address critical needs.
