Ray of Sunshine with Amy Ray
ATTENTION WOMEN WHO WISH TO BE IN RECOVERY – THIS EPISODE IS FOR YOU!
ATTENTION WOMEN WHO CONNECT WITH , “Women Helping Women”, THIS EPISODE IS FOR YOU.
Joining us is Amy Ray, our serendipitous guest who Leanne connected with by the Ocean in Cabo San Lucas! (She also delivered us with our newest member to HTC Family, her son Sam! Hi Sam! )
You’ll quickly learn why Leanne and Amy hit it off, because Amy has a bright energy and heart that she wears so beautifully on her sleeve. Amy works as a Group Facilitator at Lake County Haven, a women’s shelter in the suburbs of Chicago.
Amy started her social service career at Women’s Residential Services where she provided individual and group services to women and children. Amy is passionate about providing “a way out” of the chaos of homelessness so that women and children can live full, abundant lives.
