Severe Weather Shelter Network News
Are you hungry for a New Relationship?
The Relationships I have with my brothers and sisters who live on the streets have definitely changed my life. In a very positive way to be sure.
I used to wonder about myself. Was I good enough? Am I making a difference in the world? How can I be better than I am now? Do I need more education? There is a theme here….I…I….I.
Six years and many nights of shelter later I find that I cannot think so much about my own situation. Shelter nights have given me the opportunity to know people who are different than I am. Our guests have also shown me how close I am to their situation. Just a couple of paychecks away and I could be on the streets just like they are now.
Relationships are a gift and a blessing. Through relationships, we learn how to be a better version of ourselves. We learn that our heart can beat for others and desire a better life for them…and for us. Relationships give us access to a more meaningful expression of life. Relationships change the community…one person at a time.
Severe Weather Shelter Network is a great place to meet people you would not meet anywhere else. Other volunteers who have been moved to be present with our guests on shelter nights. Guests who speak to the deeper fears and joys of our own lives. Relationships growing and flourishing every time we come together.
Are you willing…even more clearly, are you being pulled by your own heart to get to
know someone new? Are you tired of the status quo and wondering how YOU can be a
source of change in a single life…in the life of our community?
YOU can be a friend to a brother or sister living on the streets! In the safety of our Host
Sites, you can get to know someone whose life took a turn they didn’t expect and
experience a deeper sense of gratitude while celebrating a new friendship.
