The most rewarding volunteer work I've done has been in serving in a number of capacities with Good News Partners. In a neighborhood familiar with virtually every problem of urban poverty, Good News Partners tries to be a tangible expression of God's love. The focus is on homelessness and housing, but the broader needs for friendship, support and encouragement are addressed as well. For almost 25 years, I have been blessed to be directly engaged as a friend, a board member and an admirer of many people I might otherwise have never known.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
Provide decent affordable housing to several hundred families otherwise at risk of homelessness
