Volunteering Helps Me Too

Hello, I’m Carey. I like helping people. When I was younger I worked at two different shelters and learned a lot about homelessness. In particular I saw how hard it was for homeless women.

 

Actually, I was homeless too. After a stint in the Marine Corps overseas, I had trouble adjusting to a life without structure. In the 1990s and also this past decade I was homeless, so I understand something about the life of the guests here.

 

Since I had some time now and wanted to help out, I volunteer once or twice a week. Cooking meals relaxes me, and coming here gives me some needed structure. I’ve only missed a few weeks over the last three years. The guests appreciate hot meals, so it works out well for everyone!
