In the taxi ride on the way to the Siloam Mission the other day, the conversation with the taxi driver went something like this...
DRIVER: What is this building that you're going to? Whenever I drive by, I always
see a lot of people standing outside of it?
ME: It's a homeless shelter, where some can get a place to sleep, and where many others can get meals, as well as access to some really basic things we all need, like a
mailing address, a phone, doctor and dental care, a haircut, clothing and personal hygiene items, spiritual support, job search help, and lots of other services, most of which are provided by volunteers.
