A book on Human Service Alliance invites us to take a closer look at these and other questions. The book, Better Than Money Can Buy: The NEW Volunteers, leaves little doubt and offers an antidote to the cynicism of our times. Human Service Alliance (HSA) volunteers have been described as angels and HSA has been called the next best thing to heaven, yet it is the true story of a group of ordinary people who perform extraordinary, selfless deeds in daily service to others. Hundreds of volunteers at this unique Winston-Salem organization care for adults who are dying, children with developmental disabilities, and people who suffer from chronic pain. The organization and its efforts have been described as being similar to the work of Mother Teresa, with an American, nondenominational approach. Human Service Alliance is attracting world-wide attention and its success serves as inspiration and a model for others seeking to start an all-volunteer service organization. People travel from all over the world at their own expense to serve 50-60 hours a week, receiving room and board but no stipend. Why do they do it? Can only a few special people be a part of this? What is the motivation?Stories and commentaries in the book reveal magical transformations which happen among the servers and those served. Many find that they come to volunteer, and in that process discover a profound sense of purpose that gives their lives new meaning. This book is their story, and it can be yours- it is for anyone open to having their heart touched by inspiration, love, and goodwill.All proceeds from the sale of this book go to support the services to the community offered by Human Service Alliance.
