I know the names of the homeless in the photos. I’ve spoken to Priscilla, the woman they interviewed in the article. One of our guests the other night was a pregnant woman. A few of our guests arrive in wheelchairs.
Every time we provide temporary shelter for the homeless at Code Blue it requires 14 volunteers to be fully staffed. If we are not fully staffed we cannot offer the homeless shelter on these nights when the cold is life-threatening. Please share this with anyone you know who has recently retired or anyone you know who is considering volunteering this winter. Volunteering is addictive. The more you do the more you want to do.
We know, Bobbie! One of our Sisters has been helping with Code Blue for awhile now. Read her story here.
