Season For Caring
With the Thanksgiving Holiday and the Season of Sharing both in the rear-view mirror, and Hanukkah and Christmas upon us, now is the time for the “Season of Caring”. Below are the answers to three questions that were put before several of our homeless clients.
WHAT ARE YOUR WISHES/HOPES FOR THE HOLIDAYS?
- To have a place to live and not be on the street.
- I hope to spend time with my children when they return from college.
- Good Holidays.
- To get through it a little healthier and happier.
- My wish is to see as many people as possible get into the Salvation Army program to find housing. I hope to be in contact with my family over the holidays so that I won’t have to feel so all alone like so many others.
- Peace on Earth.
- To have a nice, safe holiday, to be able to give my mom a Christmas gift, and to be able to spend it with friends and family.
- To still be alive and well, so I can go back to Indiana for the summer.
- I wish for a safe holiday.
- A life free from hate in our community. Peace.
- I wish you a Merry Christmas.
- I hope to have a wonderful day with my daughter.
WHAT IS YOUR WISH FOR OTHERS DURING THE HOLIDAYS?
- I hope others can find happiness and contentment at least through the holidays.
- To get through it like me—a little happier and healthier.
- That they may be with family and enjoy the holidays.
- For whatever dreams and hopes they have to come true, and health for all.
- Just love. Live life the way God wants you to.
- I hope the quality of their life changes for the better.
- That all may find peace in their hearts no matter how tough life is.
- I wish for others to have a safe and happy holiday.
- I wish that everyone starts a journey to find themselves, and to never end their search.
- My wish for others during the holidays is to be safe and have a happy holiday.
- Health, shelter and peace.
WHAT DOES RESURRECTION HOUSE MEAN TO YOU?
- Resurrection House is a reliable resource center for many needs. I rely on the mail, laundry and medical clinic.
- When the help is needed, it’s really nice to know it is here when needed, whether you need a friend or counseling.
- The Resurrection House has been just that for me—it has helped to resurrect me physically, mentally, and spiritually. It has helped to completely restore me with hope.
- It means for me a place to be able to clean up and do my laundry.
- The Resurrection House is a place of hope in helping our community.
- I’m very thankful to the people who volunteer their time here. What would we do without them for food, laundry and showers?
- Faith, hope, and love. A step to help for the future.
- All the services, from coffee to counselors, are very helpful.
- It’s a place to come for help. If there was no Resurrection House, I don’t know what I would do.
- It means a lot to me. I can get help with the doctors and nurses.
- A place of hope and help. The people here cannot be more helpful. Thank you very much.
From all of us to all of you -
Wishing you a joyous holiday season!
