My Why – Jen Veatch
CEO, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Northeast Indiana
I am blessed to say “I love my job.” Not because of a facility or a title, but because of the opportunity to help someone every day. When you are entrusted to care for someone’s heart, when you are allowed to lighten someone’s burden, you have found a gift beyond measure. The Ronald McDonald House provides such a gift to staff and volunteers and in turn we work to provide the gift of housing and open arms to families of ill children. The Ronald McDonald House is where I have met courageous people with beautiful hearts and witnessed miracle babies get to go home when they weren’t even expected to live. The staff is all-in and the volunteers are wonderful. So, when people ask me why I accepted the job at the Ronald McDonald House. It’s simple… this is where God led me and I’m privileged to serve in his name.
