Marisol volunteer offers gentle voice to women in need

Jill Heringer, a Marisol Health volunteer, sits in the waiting room of the Denver location.

Since Marisol Health first opened under Catholic Charities, volunteer Jill Heringer has been the gentle voice and welcoming smile to women walking through the doors.

“That’s my role as a volunteer—to be that gentle voice that helps them through,” said Jill, a parishioner at St. Mary Church in Littleton.

Her and her husband, Kevin Heringer, have been strong supporters of defending life at all ages and stages. When they heard several years ago about the effort to help women in crisis, she offered her time as a volunteer.

Jill recently trained for a new volunteer position to help clients of Marisol Health enroll in Medicaid. The more than one-hour process can be difficult for some clients. But Jill is there to assist them.


“It sounds easy to some of us, but a lot of the women don’t have access to computers,” Jill said. “We sit down, and we go over all the things they need to make sure they can qualify. I walk through the online Medicaid website with them.”

It’s the kind of volunteer work that gives Jill the opportunity to treat each person with dignity.

“There’s a motivation to show someone a little dignity,” she said. “When I look at the women, I see beauty. We all want to be there for them every step of the way.”
