In Their Own Words
WATTS is a lifesaver – I feel safe and have met new friends. I really don’t know where I would be without WATTS – lonely and hungry for sure. Just the fact that you remembered my name means a lot. I will get my SSI in August, hope to get my knees fixed and get a job and my own place. It has been 3 years since I lost my job and house – WATTS has helped me get through this time – I have hope.
WATTS gives us a degree of hope and worth – hopelessness and uselessness are predominant feelings when you are in this situation – to see the human generosity and Christian charity among the WATTS volunteers gives a feeling of hope and worth. WATTS has kept me safe – it is really rough out in the woods and not always safe. WATTS is really a good program – I am nourished and kept warm and WATTS gives many of us a feeling of belonging when we are often treated as outcasts.
Without the help of WATTS I may not be living right now – I’m not sure I would have made it this far through the cold. WATTS was there when I was down and out – they helped me through some days when I could not help myself. After the shelter closes I will be stable, I have a job and have been able to save some money. Yes, WATTS has truly been a blessing – it has helped me in so many ways.
If it wasn’t for WATTS I would have froze to death a couple of times. WATTS is really great, for all of these volunteers to give their time up to help us means a LOT to everyone in the program. Thank you for all you do.
