Ive been involved with the InterFaith Shelter network for 20 yearsas a volunteer setting up the shelters at my Church and as a overnight host. My wife coordinated the hosting at our church for a few years as well.We were drawn to this ministry for a number of reasons. It helped individuals get back up on their feet in so many ways. From getting housing, to keeping a job by learning some Job skill or interview skill. It provided a safe place for the families and It provided a much needed structure for these individuals . Simple rules that would allow them to get along with others and yet have some modicum of privacy and safety. It personally provided me and my family an avenue to serve others that needed our help. An effective way to present caring for others in a tangible way to my young Sons who would help me in small ways every year including eating with the guests and hearing their stories. This is a ministry where many people in the church can help out ans serve the community . Phil
