GOLDEN ARROW DIRECTOR

Doris Fierros, Director of the Golden Arrow Center, started volunteering in Mexico City, Mexico (1991-1993) at St. Patrick Catholic Church by helping fundraising for The Sisters of Charity home for abandoned children with special needs. After moving back to The United States in 1997, she volunteered for the baby closet of the Preservation for Human Dignity Center, a pregnancy center in the Chicago, IL area.

Since Doris is fluent in Spanish, she also interprepted intake interviews for the intake coordinators. After several months of interpreting, she took the three month training class on how to perform intake interviews. Gradually, she was asked to interprept for the case managers and help with pregnancy tests. This was also followed by two months of intense training classes. The case manager worked with clients on a monthly basis to help set short and long term goals.

In 1999 her husband was transferred to Louisville, KY., when Doris joined The Golden Arrow Center for Mothers and Children as a volunteer. In September 2002 she was given the directorship of the center.
