I started volunteering in January 2016 and what an amazing organization. They have been working to get homeless off the streets and become productive citizens for years. Congressman Peters was so inspired at the grand opening of the first house the charity opened for homeless youth, that he committed to fighting even harder to get funds for San Diego's homeless. I love volunteering for this organization, they are full of passion and caring. The unique music and arts program that they offer to the homeless is one of a kind. To watch the youth find peace while playing an instrument or drawing a picture, it just makes me tear up. The founder, Jeffrey Sitcov is one of the most kind, caring and sincere people I have ever had the pleasure to work with. Every Sunday he is out on the streets encouraging the homeless youth to come play some music, create some art, and have a meal. I feel so blessed to have found this charity to give my time to. An organization that is literally saving lives.
