A few months ago, some students from Columbia College visited the Lincoln Park Community Shelter. We recently received a donation from the students, along with letters about their experience. Below is one example of the letters we received.
Dear LPCS guest,
My name is Jessica D., and I am one of the students from Columbia College who visited LPCS about a month ago. I interviewed two residents, and their stories changed my entire outlook on life. I will never forget my visit to LPCS and I am much more aware of the social issues involved with homelessness now. I am more aware and empathetic citizen, thanks to the two people I talked to. You and all the other residents of LPCS are in my thoughts and prayers daily, and I wish you the best for the future. I hope you enjoy the holidays and keep feeling inspired, because I feel inspired myself after visiting LPCS.
