Darlene Shephard, Phoenix, Florence Crittenton

Darlene has dedicated the last 40 years of her life to volunteering for Florence Crittenton, a nonprofit serving girls and young women who have suffered trauma and mental illness and are in need of shelter, support and healing through residential, educational and community-based programs. Darlene has done everything from work in the thrift store, Flo’s on 7th, to board member and board president to developing and implementing two programs that are instrumental in the organization’s work. In addition, Darlene volunteers at the Elk’s Lodge 335 on the Veterans’ committee, visiting with Veterans in their home.
