SAN FRANCISCO, CA - Jennifer “Jak” Kauffman has been named Volunteer of the Month by San Francisco Village, a nonprofit organization funded by Capital Impact Partners. The mission of SF Village, and similar villages across the country, is to increase the physical, emotional, intellectual, social, and spiritual well-being of adults who choose to live in their own homes as they age so they can remain independent, active, and engaged in their community.
SF Village is part of nationwide movement to support seniors who wish to maintain their independence as long as possible. Staff members consult with experts on aging, health, wellness, home safety to ensure dignified and beneficial assistance.
As part of her volunteering, Kauffman has changed light bulbs, boxed up books, turned mattresses and hung pictures as well as providing transportation to various classes and appointments. She has developed friendships with many of the clients and plans to continue this very rewarding activity indefinitely.
“I am not a young volunteer. Some of the clients that I have worked with have not been much older than I am, but because of their disabilities they are unable to do many of the things that I take for granted,” commented Kauffman. “So, I have learned to be even more thankful for my health and strength.”
“Jennifer is a very admirable example of giving back to our community, and I wholly commend her dedication to this worthwhile organization,” stated Aimee Arost, Managing Broker/Partner at Zephyr’s Noe Valley Office. “She truly has the heart of a volunteer.”
Kauffman, a valued member of the Zephyr team, works from the Noe Valley office and may be reached at 415.652.8100 or her website: www.jaksf.com.
