Ok...I want to volunteer for the cocoon house. This was my job as an outreach worker for many years at SHD. Homeless Youth is my specialty. Our program was cut due to Fed cuts. Working with these often very young vulnerable kids was the joy of my life. They respected me and I respected them...and they let me help...they let me in...and I am very anxious to see if I can help again. I'm Free too. Haha.
