Alissa Rose

My name is Alissa and I’m a volunteer coordinator from Cerritos in Southern California. I love to sing while playing the guitar, ukulele or accordion. I go Israeli folk dancing, which I have done for over 40 years. I recently retired from teaching students with special needs and started to crochet.  I enjoy making items for my one year old granddaughter Noa and spending time with her. 

Volunteer Coordinator
Tim Gibson

My name is Tim and I am a volunteer at LAI.  I live in a high-rise building in downtown Brooklyn NY, with my cat Oscar.  I am retired from the airline and travel business and have visited 158 countries.

Volunteer Coordinator
Ellen Rabinowitz

My name is Ellen and I'm a retired occupational therapist.  I moved to Denver from NYC 12 years ago and my east coast accent still amuses the locals.  I enjoy reading, crossword puzzles, swimming, old movies, anything animal-related and volunteering in my pajamas!  I volunteer/send correspondence for one national and two local non-profits besides LAI...sometimes I feel like I'm single-handedly trying to save the U.S. Postal Service!  I look forward to meeting more of our fantastic volunteers in my new role!
