Review for Shreveport - Bossier Rescue Mission, Shreveport, LA, USA
I started volunteering at the Shreveport-Bossier Rescue Mission in May of 2011. I help serve lunch to the residents. I have always wanted to help serve meals and finally asked myself "so what is stopping me?" Answer "nothing" So i decided to step out of my comfort zone and decided to volunteer to help feed others beside myself. It is so gratifying and it puts me in perspective of what God has blessed me with, family, home and job. I have gotten to know some wonderful people, other volunteers, works and the residents. The Shreveport-Bossier Rescue Mission is truly a blessing for men, women and children and families.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Well I am in no means being critical. But to my understanding, the men can be employed and also live at the mission for a small fee. The women can not do this, from my understanding if the women have employment but no where to live they have to give up their job and go through the nine month program in order to be accepted at the mission. This was told to me by a resident. Just wondering. Thank you
