  •  Thanks for the reminder to all of us (1+ / 0-)

    Our Quaker meeting has handled intake for the rotating winter shelter in our town for the last six years, and I volunteer a couple of days a week. I have had a chance to get to know these folks and to see the obstacles they face each day. It's a disturbing reminder of our society's indifference to people on the margins. But it's also a gift to be part of the courage, generosity, and friendship that so many of our guests bring to their situation and to this little community.

    I would like to echo the previous writer and ask you to share more about the work you do, and the barriers you and your guests face. We need to keep working to make this part of our community visible to the larger world, starting with this online neighborhood.
