WHAT A SHELTER REALLY IS...

I have been Santa Claus, The Easter Bunny, and The Tooth Fairy

I have helped children with their homework and book reports when their mothers were too overwhelmed to do so

I have been a taxi driver taking clients to WIC appointments, Job & Family Services, job interviews and the bus station

I have been a maintenance man/Janitor

I have been a maid (daily) to keep our shelter looking clean and tidy

I have been a "counselor" - listening to both heartwarming and heart-breaking stories and everything in between

I have heard about the best days of our clients lives to the worst days of their lives

I have listened to them about their childhoods, their relationships, and their families

I have gone to the hospital with a client that was found on the back steps crying because she was just raped

I have consoled clients who wanted to talk about the death of their child

I have comforted a client that discussed the fact that she was raped daily by her stepfather as a teen and was forced to give birth to his child

These are just a few of the many hats we wear as Homesafe employees, we are more than just a place to rest your head.
