“My volunteer position at Mary House opened my eyes to a different world and opened my heart to all individuals there. During my year of service, I witnessed first-hand how unjust the world could be, especially to the most vulnerable among us. I was present at two funerals, saw the effects of abuse, and watched drugs destroy a person. I also helped people recover from homelessness and was present when two of my women earned their sobriety chips. I walked with my women and lent my ear to them and they blessed me with their stories. In this way and others, I have lived Mercy. This year has changed me in so many ways. I am no longer blind to life on the streets and this new knowledge has opened my heart to those suffering from homelessness.”
