Travelers Aid Society has helped travelers who are stranded or homeless in the Salt Lake area since 1923. And for the past three years, Lila Adamson has been a part of that effort.
Two days a week, Adamson volunteers at the Greyhound Bus Deport, where she provides support to staff and information and directions to clientele."She has frequently recognized a need and has responded to individual client requests in a sensitive and caring manner," said Leslie Russell, Travelers Aid volunteer coordinator. "She displays initiative in recognizing a job needing to be done by undertaking the task and following through until completion."
Among the help provided by the society is shelter, transportation, short-term counseling and other services to people in distress. Society staff members say Adamson's work with the clientele is of "exceptionally high quality; she is respected and liked by clients requesting services."
