Volunteer Spotlight

Linda Chandler

If you call the Homeless Coalition, the kind, helpful voice on the other end of the line is most likely Linda Chandler.  Linda answers the phones and helps direct callers to the services they need.  She has been volunteering 20 hours a week in the Homeless Coalition’s administrative offices since August 2016.

Linda says she empathizes with those who are experiencing homelessness and wanted to give back to the community. She heard about the Homeless Coalition through AARP. She is pleased to be able to help people find the right resources

Linda worked for the Palm Beach County School Board for more than two decades. She retired early to care for her husband, Jerry.

Before becoming a volunteer, Linda says she did not realize the enormity of the homeless issue. She says she is encouraged that we can end homelessness in Palm Beach County when she sees the proactive, passionate nature of the Homeless Coalition staff.

Thank you Linda for your dedication to our team!
