Quote of the month:¬†¬†Healthy Communities Coalition director Christy McGill recently wrote, “For every person or child who is or was homeless in this community there is a story–these stories are all different but common themes are sickness, trauma, addiction, violence, sadness, and poverty. If only it were because “he or she does not want to work” then it would be so much easier……..think of the healing if people could share those stories without fear of blame, shame, and isolation–I love when I see people who are willing to listen, show compassion, and help build hope–none of these things begin with money.”
