Interfaith Shelter Network of San Diego
November 9, 2010
I have been a volunteer with the Rotational Shelter Network program of the Ecumenical Council of San Diego County for several years now, through my church. It has always been a rewarding experience, even with the trials that come with these same experiences. I would highly recommend anyone who wants a rewarding volunteer experience to contact the Rotational Shelter Network program of the Ecumenical Council of San Diego County and help in anyway that they can. The joy that comes from helping those in need is more than and $$ amount anyone can give...your heart and those you help hearts are filled with love and grace.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
The families I have helped have always shown so much gratitude for the love and generosity they have received, and yet I am the one who feels honored by their grace and joy. Smiles, hugs, and love have always been present in the shelter.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Get more churches, synagogues, people involved. There is such a huge need, and so few who are willing to go the extra mile to assist.
Volunteer & I have been the Rotational Shelter Network coordinator for my home church, as well as overnight host in previous years.
