Doorway – A Safe Place

This is all so new to me! Blogging what is all this about? If it helps spread the good work that Doorway does then Im all for it and I want to help spread the word.
“I want people to stop hating us I see the way they look at us” These words have stuck in my head. A guest was asked his hopes and wishes for the coming year and this is what he said. He didnt want material things, he didnt want a roof over his head he just wanted respect from society.
When we welcome guests to Doorway we respect them , we look at the person and we are non judgemental . What gives us the right to judge other people?
I have been a volunteer at Doorway for 4 years and have met some very interesting people. But what strikes me is that we are all so near to being in this vulnerable position.
Doorway plays a huge part in our community and we need to continue with the good work.
