Homelessness is a crisis, especially for children. Without a stable home and the most basic needs, they are vulnerable to many problems and a continued cycle of instability. The reasons for homelessness vary. A layoff, addiction, and domestic violence to name a few. At the Rescue Mission, they work with families to overcome problems, make changes, and find affordable housing and employment. I see positive change in these women and children from one visit to the next. It is a pleasure to volunteer with this program. A haircut may not be as vital as a meal or shelter, but it can sure boost self esteem. I brings us great joy to pamper people and let them know they are loved. We are so blessed. Take time to be a blessing to others. You will get more in return than you could ever give.
