Behind the scenes each day, thousands of men and women with hearts too big to contain passion for the forgotten, neglected and those living on the thinnest edge of survival, work in silence.
They toil in creative ways, collaborating with one another to help keep the underserved from drowning in hunger, homelessness and the many quicksands of poverty.
It’s a calling in which few ever considered enlisting but were once recruited through their own experiences, hardships, and indeed, the universe.
We are called to be our brother’s keepers and obey our heart like the very gift of life it is.
And on rare occasion, someone notices, thanks them, and joins in the fight.
If that someone is you, we thank you for heeding a call whose reward, though delayed, is forever and eternal.
