What brought you to CES?
Hosanna Church came to fill bags of groceries. Two months later they needed help again, so I came. While here there was no one to answer phones. My response, “Teach me.” I have been here ever since.
What makes CES a worthy place to devote your time?
The need is so evident! I have a connection to the homeless and I can welcome people with an encouraging word.
What are your favorite tasks?
Beside welcoming people, I maintain a household closet. From my paycheck from St. Steven’s Shelter, I buy items that people need. It is amazing to see how God directs me. Someone will ask for an item and I just brought it in!”

A client mentioned how they love to come to CES “because of what you and the advocates do. The music, beautiful windows and people create a relaxing atmosphere. I enjoy the friendliness and peace at CES.” These are the comments that keep me coming back!
