Corpus Christi House offers hospitality and every day necessities to the homeless within the city of Boise. Through my SL experience with CCH I have gained new perspectives on homelessness through generosity, acceptance and trust. I have met some truly amazing individuals who strive to “stay strong.” Understanding and acceptance are key to success at CCH, as they help to lessen the gap between social exclusion and social acceptance. The environment provided by CCH enables the homeless to break down those barriers, create meaningful relationships and trust those around them. CCH is the true meaning of acceptance, compassion and altruism.
