“Adults are living in cars or other places that are outside of what most would call habitable shelter. They need resources that can remind them of their inherent value and worth, like in person-to-person contact for support. They need resources that provide for their health and safety, like food and clothing. They need a warm and dry place to clean and rest so they can face the circumstances of their lives like employment and housing. Without these resources chronic homelessness will continue to increase,” says Darla Samuelson, Just Compassion Founder

“The people were so thankful and full of gratitude and so kind and warm and friendly,” she said. “One thing that I’ll never forget were two guys who stayed after and helped us clean for 45 minutes. When I said thank you to them they totally turned it back. They thanked me for providing this for them. To me, that really showed that sense of community. We are all in this together.” - Rev. Sherilyn Wilson
WHY SUPPORT JUST COMPASSION?
"What do I like about it? It's the interaction with everybody," said Rowles, who has lived in his car for the last three years.
"I'm homeless but I have a job,” comments Troy Rowles, visitor to Just Compassion.
For Pam May, it's a cause that is deeply personal: For five years, she was homeless herself. She said she lost her job after missing time due to a medical issue for which she did not have health insurance, and she ended up losing her home and being forced out onto the streets. Just Compassion invited her to participate to give a voice to the homeless after she started coming to its meetings, and eventually, she was accepted into a program that allowed her to move into her own apartment. She has been in housing for five years now, she said.
