The families are finding it very difficult to be placed in affordable housing; one father is exhausted from working two jobs (he sleeps from 2:30 to 6 a.m.), but two-bedroom spartan Peninsula apartments start at $2,500.
One encouraging sign is that new people are signing up to replace the elder generation of volunteers who can no longer drive, or even cook. In addition to a huge salad, June folded origami birds to add a touch of class to the table settings. Rob brought his teen daughters and a friend; it took them 15 minutes to cut up a small chicken, but we all have to learn sometime, right?
Having overnight duty, I rolled out the sleeping bag. It was in the 40's--cold by California standards--but there were plenty of warm feelings to go around.
