I've been really impressed by CAM. Not only are all the volunteers there desiring to help the clients, but they also desire to help each other and the Trinity volunteers. They are so kind to everyone, and work hard to be friendly and attentive. Not to mention, many of them have been there for many years. It has really showed me that regularly volunteering someplace can be far more beneficial both to you and the organization than volunteering one time. I am beyond impressed with the CAM volunteers, and am so grateful that I get to work alongside them.
Sadly, I have never considered how being homeless can make someone feel less human. I agree that we do stigmatize homeless people, and that's extremely unfair. People are people whether they have access to a permanent shelter or not. Becky's story proved that homelessness can really affect how someone views themselves, and that can be very dangerous. Beyond getting homeless people shelter, we also need to care for their emotional and mental needs. Being homeless should not make anyone feel less valuable.
