Worked with one woman to see her potential as she was trying to juggle school with highly limited resources and a small child. She found the support of the Salvation Army as a way to find ways to eat and interact with others and she works on getting an education.
You know, the biggest thing for me is the reinforcement of we do not know what others are going through and we can find those in need and have a desire to climb out of poverty in the most unexpected places. It is also learning to stay humble and watchful of ways I can help others. And finally, it is realizing I have many connections who can also help others if I remain open to being a connector.
