"I have met some truly remarkable human beings, who have awakened my soul and lifted my spirits as a volunteer Companion at the Recovery Café. These beautiful people have had challenges that have led many to almost lose hope. But what has impressed me so profoundly has been seeing their wisdom and talent and kindness and humor and resilience beyond the labels they may have been given. And they aren't giving up. They want an opportunity to begin a new life. And it is lovely to see it happen!"
