What is your biggest struggle with poverty on a daily basis?
“I personally don’t struggle with poverty but from what I’ve seen here at the shelter, I think clothing and shelter are the biggest issues. Certainly, even acceptance and understanding by others of their situation are definitely concerns for many people.”
What would you like people to know about living in poverty?
“Don’t judge a book by its cover! I think if people took the time and got to know the people here, then they could see they were dealt different cards. I strongly believe everyone deserves a chance. A second chance and more. Don’t turn a blind eye because you’ve never gone through their situations because they deserve that chance.”
