i used to volunteer for ootc. since august i’ve been the webguy. tonight i was elected to the board. i’ve learned that:
- people are sleeping under bridges, even in winter
- ootc has a safety and respect policy, but some orgs are way more stringent
- people are incredibly generous and see a need
- i know we need to stop homelessness, but in the meantime there aren’t enough beds, during the winter or year-round
- some people are lost and need to know what’s out there, what’s the big picture?
