Caring Contact is pleased to announce the addition of Hope Skibitsky to its Board of Trustees. 

Ms. Skibitsky is a former listener on the Caring Contact hotline.  

“While living in Westfield I volunteered as a listener at Caring Contact.  Through the experience of listening to callers I came to fully understand the power of listening and strongly believe in Caring Contact’s mission. It is for that reason that I am excited to be able to contribute to Caring Contact and the community where I grew up in this new capacity.”
