“I know that no matter what I throw at them, they are going to support me and love me and speak truth into my life.” - Laura, UGM Crisis Shelter
Tom and Debbie Davis are volunteer mentors at UGM’s Crisis Shelter. For a year, they served in the kitchen, led chapel services and provided childcare. That’s where they met Laura, who soon became their first mentee.
During an interview with our case managers, I was reminded there is a difference between knowing something because I’ve scrutinized it, and knowing because I've walked alongside people in the midst of it.
