Alumni United Profile

As a young mother, Tis Olesko found herself in an abusive marriage, desperate to find a way out. Two of her good friends extended their hands and helped Tis move out on her own and get back on her feet. She promised to pay them back for all of their financial support as soon as she could, but when the time came they refused to take her money. Instead, they asked Tis to pay it forward by helping other people. Tis never forgot about this extraordinary act of kindness. When the time for retirement came, Tis knew exactly what to do: volunteer to help families and children in her community.

When Tis read about United Way’s Welcome Baby program, it was a perfect fit, and she has been volunteering ever since. Welcome Baby is an in-home visitation program that helps new mothers and teaches parenting skills. At first, Tis was assigned to visit five families, but now that number has grown to 17. 

Home visit volunteers like Tis serve as a great support system for these new mothers. On every visit, Tis brings information to help parents through each new stage of child development, to supplement her advice as an experienced mother.

Tis loves being a Welcome Baby volunteer and claims that she is the one receiving the most benefits. “I do get paid. I just don’t get paid in money," she says. "I get paid every time I walk into those doors. I get more out of it than I give it to them. They give me a purpose."
