“Maybe I was arrogant, but I never thought this would happen to us. But it did. We were homeless for 11 months, but there are people who have been homeless for years, decades even and you can see this in the way they act and the way they dress. They didn’t start out like that. It is the world on the street breaking them down. There are amazing people with hidden talents and stories here, but because of circumstances, you start to give up. It is very hard to get out of here and back to there. And getting back emotionally has been the hardest part. Getting back to knowing we have a home again. We don’t want to come back here again, but we do come back almost every day to volunteer. They are our family, our extended family, including the staff.”
Having been former clients of the Cool Aid Society, this couple has decided to give back to the community and help us on our mission to #EndHomelessness
. With heartwarming stories like these, this is why we keep doing what we do.
