Interfaith Shelter Network of San Diego
November 21, 2011

I have been a volunteer of the Interfaith Shelter Network for close to 10 years. While many organizations lobby, march, walk/run and demonstrate to help the homeless, the Interfaith Shelter feeds and houses them one person at a time. From the caseworkers to the coordinators and donators, the cooks and overnight help, and the guests themselves, this organization has helped get many people on their feet every year.

The Great!

One year I was able to see a former client of the organization become a volunteer.

I felt good being able to help people that I met instead of throwing money to an organization and hoping that it helped someone.
