Cold. Dark. Wet. Welcome to the streets of Pierce County at night.
These words take on new meaning when you've spent a night sleeping on the sidewalk, underneath I-5 or in the doorway of a business. Then you might add a few more adjectives. Bone-chilling. Embarrassing. Frightening.
Hundreds of men and women spend each night like this.
They focus on simple things - keeping their feet dry, finding the best doorway to sleep under or just trying to not think about their growling stomach.
When you live on the streets, the line between safety and danger is very thin. A pair of dry socks, a warm blanket and an encouraging conversation can really make a difference.
That is why the Mission will be hitting the streets every Saturday afternoon (12:00PM to 4:00PM) in the Search & Rescue Van, distributing these much needed items and facilitating healing relationships. They will also be offering the men and women they meet a ride back to the Mission for a safe night’s stay and a chance to get off the streets for good.
We are looking for long-term volunteers who can guarantee themselves available to a weekly or bi-weekly commitment.
If interested please respond to set up an interview time.
