Week of January 29
I've selected St. Anne's Place. I have quite a bit of expirence working in homeless shelters, so it seems like a good fit for me. It was my first choice and there i was placed. I hope to help and grow with those who I will be working with. Not only am I looking forward to understanding the innerworkings of a non-profit organization and the staff that supports it, but also to get to know and understand those without homes who reside in St. Anne's. I'm facinated and would like very much so to get in the field of social work. The expirence of volunteering for St. Anne's hopefully will help enrich me and those around me.
I plan on taking the bus. Which i am certainly hesitant about in terms of safety. My 23 year old sister lives right off of Olson Memorial HIghway on the edge of N. Minneapolis. She worries about me being down there past 6:00 at night. We'll see how it goes. I'm nearly certain that it will all work itself out just fine.
