Hope 2 has Arrived!
2 teams, more area traveled=more connections. Tonight, Bob took the wheel of Hope 1 and led our volunteer crew through our normal route, while Eva and I sought out new camps and searched for old friends. We're gearing up for a winter storm followed by a bitter blast of arctic air. Once it comes, it doesn't look like it's going to leave for awhile. The immediate need is ensuring we are covering all areas, connecting with as many people as we can to assist them in getting some place warm. We're also preparing for next weeks annual Point In Time - MKE count. The one night a year, where anyone and everyone experiencing homelessness needs to be found and counted. Though, they're not numbers. They're real people. Real moms, dads, sisters and brothers. Real people needing real help.
We couldn't do any of this without your support. We continue to be blessed day in and day out and for that, we are grateful.
