St. Ben’s Community Meal Site
October 2, 2017
Here is something to consider as we approach the cold months ahead. Last winter when I was at the St. Ben’s Community Meal an encounter with one of our guests stuck in my head. I dined with a woman who would be about my mother’s age. She was friendly and shared where she went to school, places where she worked and how her family drew away when her mental illness symptoms worsened. Now she was homeless most of the time. She spent nights in shelters or wherever she could find solace.
