December blew in this year with hopes and tension, stress and elation. We have the unscripted moments that lift the heart…volunteers singing, gifts that magically appear and a beautiful tree and lights to brighten the shelter. And we have worry, because so many people need our help.
And so, on December 21st, the longest night of the year, we remember with sadness both our friends and strangers who died on the streets. Later we celebrate hope and joy with the children and families we shelter.
To all our supporters, thank you for your warmth and encouragement and may you have a beautiful holiday.
