Volunteer Coordinator + Administrative Assistant
Adriana is a ray of sunshine at ABODE. A former volunteer chaplain at University Hospital, Adriana came to ABODE to help in the office. She now managing the volunteers who serve everyday at the home. When she's not answering the phone, sending notes to volunteers, helping cook lunch, or organizing something, you'll find her helping our Guests.
End-of-Life Navigators offer the day-to-day care of our Guests and their families. We could not function at ABODE without them.
ABODE has an educational relationship with UT San Antonio Department of Counseling and St. Mary’s University. We are pleased to offer internship opportunities to a small number of students. All students we've had in the last two years have all stayed for two semesters.
