    That’s a great thing to see. I wish there was a non-secular group providing help in my community. We have the Salvation Army & ECHO, both faith-based, and receiving tax dollars. There’s also GIFTS (God Is Faithful Temporary Shelter). GIFTS doesn’t really want my help because I’m not with a church, although they don’t come right out and say it, but I do volunteer at a non-secular homeless shelter that is owned by a former Catholic hospital. The shelter is in the old convent, and is surrounded by a Catholic church, and school. I need to start something, somehow.

    Well we’re always looking for folks who want to start a chapter of AHH in their town. It’s a lot of work though, and only one other group has managed to make it happen, in Dallas/Ft. Worth. They kick ass: http://www.DFWAHH.org

    To anyone wanting to try to start a chapter of AHH, please contact me! ZameckiJ at G Mail dot com  🙂
