Life in a Homeless Shelter

Here’s a classic post from Today At The Mission (see blogroll at right) from March, 2005 that gives some insight into what it’s like to work at Peterborough’s Brock Street Mission:

Today a client asked me what was the worst job I’ve ever had. “This one”, I replied. “This place is impossible.”

He then asked me what was the best job I’ve ever had. I thought for a minute and then said, “This one – I wouldn’t want to work anywhere else.”

I’ll apologize to Dickens later.
