I absolutely love the Bigger Vision! I have been volunteering since 2010. The organization is awesome, and so are the people they are helping.

It was a blessing to be able to serve at the shelter with my family. I am always looking for ways that my elementary aged boys can genuinely serve others and this is something that they can do and enjoy doing. Not only do we cook and serve the meal, we also get to visit with the guests at the shelter. Several years ago, there was a specific guest that "clicked" with my son who was 4 at the time. They talked and drew each other pictures. That whole winter, my son continued to talk with him until the man got his own apartment. What a wonderful experience that my son had - interacting with someone who he normally would not have had the chance and then to see the hope that is out there for people to better their circumstances. Our experiences at the shelter have helped my entire family have personal experiences so that we can have a "face" to picture when we think of the homeless. Each person who is homeless IS a person and needs our love and acceptance.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

have a permanent place so that it could operate more than just half of the year. The services that it provides to the homeless population could expand and grow.
