Our very first event even beforeopeningtheshelter was a Christmas party for homeless children
organized by a local group of girl scouts. We provided a tree and lights, girls brought ornaments and all the children had fun to decorate; the tree was ready in no time.
...and...wow...it was beautiful. What a joy it was to see their smiling faces.
...and there were many joyful Christmases to follow:
many guests, many parties, many presents.
Volunteers and Their Work
Over the years hundreds of volunteers came to help and they keep coming.
Whether it is a hard labor around the house or teaching, playing and serving the families, the benefits are boundless.
We are grateful to all and everyone for their compassion and sacrifice.
