I've been homeless for years and have stayed in the cold weather shelter. There is no end to the numbers of caring people in the Whittier Area.

I am a member of East Whittier Friends Church. Each year, I participate in some way in our week of hosting the homeless for this program. It is one of the most rewarding mission projects I know of. The men, women and children we host are not homeless by choice. Their stories cause me to be grateful to God that I have a roof over my head and food on my table. I am blessed to be able to be part of this ecumenical endeavor.

Tonight I spoke with a woman getting read to sleep in an alley in Uptown Whittier. I asked her if she could go to a church shelter, and she responded that she didn't know of any;neither did I. I offered her an extra blanket and pillow I keep in my van and some food. She was grateful and bid me "good night". I hope that she is there tomorrow so I can inform her about the shelters you mention here. God bless them, and those who are doing such an admirable job. I may even venture into doing my part!

300 Catholics helping those in need - I am always so impressed by how charitable and giving the Catholic church is.

It is a wonderful program and I am so thankful it is offered in the community. This year I am wondering if we will ever have cold weather? Nice to know these churches will be ready if and when we do.
