Volunteer of the Week

LaVon Rader is our volunteer of the week and the 2024 WPS Volunteer Awards Heart of Gold Lifetime Achievement Award recipient!


LaVon has spent her lifetime in service to others. Fifty-eight years ago, she says she "woke up" to the racism in this country, and she has been a tireless activist for those without a voice ever since. Beginning in the South in the 1960s, when she helped bring the Head Start program to the underserved children of Mississippi during the Civil Rights movement, she selflessly served without hesitation despite the danger it might put her in.


When LaVon moved to Northeastern Wisconsin, her passion for helping young people came with her, and she became a reading buddy and mentor in the Howard, Pulaski, and Suamico school districts. She also created an art appreciation program for children in grades K-8, recruiting, training, and supervising parent volunteers. Her church, St. John the Baptist, is important to her, and she has served on the church's Social Justice and Human Concerns Committee, sung in the choir, lectured at Sunday masses, and read to a visually impaired parishioner every Monday for 17 years. LaVon has also volunteered for the Red Cross, served meals at the NEW Community Shelter, and makes weekly visits and calls to elderly neighbors and those with special needs through the Aging and Disability Resource Center.


Additionally, LaVon and her husband, Dennis, have taken Notre Dame Academy students back to Mississippi to help build a home for a rural family. For many years, LaVon has also been a volunteer at Wellspring, serving women who are homeless, at risk, living with addiction or mental illness, or simply looking for a place to belong. She not only lends an ear and offers guidance to clients when they seek it, but also helps with fundraising efforts, washes dishes, cleans toilets, and anything else that needs attention. Her love of plants even led to Wellspring’s beautiful perennial flower garden. Wherever LaVon has been, she has recognized a need and given selflessly, walking alongside the people she served, supporting them with compassion and leading by example. Thank you, LaVon, for everything you have done to make a difference in so many lives!

Child Care for Family Classes

You Belong's family classes for ages newborn to kindergarten focus on caring for families with littles.

Their instructors create a supportive environment where families are encouraged to play together and participate in crafts, circle time with songs and stories, and play-based learning.
