VOA Voices: Joni Jenkins & Julie Raque Adams
Jennifer Hancock thanked State Senator Julie Raque Adams and State Representative Joni Jenkins for opening Volunteers of America’s 2019 Power of 1 Breakfast by calling them “a dynamic duo who fight for people in need every day and are champions for the people we serve. And they know how to take a stand for what they believe in.” As partners to Volunteers of America, they have helped more pregnant women receive treatment for substance use disorder and raised awareness of the need for more investment in recovery programs. Every day, they demonstrate how bipartisan cooperation and leadership can make our communities safer and healthier places to live.
