Church of Mary Magdalene
December 21, 2009
I have been volunteering for 2 years. The things that impress me about Marys Place are:
They don't allow the women to sleep in the day facility. They have group talks. The women are able to cook their own food when its their turn and clean up after themselves. They have the women earn points to be able to purchase things from Bon Mary (lingerie). This helps the women build respect for themselves. Former homeless women now work parttime in the office and sorting donations. This practice could be expanded if resources were available.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
Kind & Patient
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
Own its own facility and put more energy into getting women independant instead of worrying about keeping their own doors open.
