Dr. Teresa England
Quotes from Shelter Volunteers
“The best way for people to understand, is to strip them of I.D., S.S card, birth certificate, cash and credit cards. Give them a change of clothes, a sleeping bag and a list of services around town and turn them loose for 30 days. That would give them a taste of what homeless is like!”
“I have personally helped and enabled individuals to no longer be homeless.”
“ I have a special care for underprivileged and mentally slow people, people who are trying to exist after illness, addiction, or past wrong living who are trying to recover.”
