MICKY has just shared a meal at Mitchell House*. He checks to see if anyone can hear him down the hallway as he steps up to the front counter. “I’m homeless,” he tells the volunteer behind that counter. “Can you help me?”
He’s the second person to ask Sue that question today. Earlier, Marg, an older woman, was looking for a place to park. She’s sleeping in her car while she gets her life back on track. But this guy doesn’t own a car. Sue rings SalvoCare.
Meanwhile, Kel gathers a few essentials from the free food stall on the front veranda. People can take what they need without having to ask. Kel really appreciates the fresh food and plans her menu around what’s available. Pasta, tomato sauce and a tin of tuna will make a good meal tonight.
