Entries for 'Shelly Shultz'
This dear lady put her arms around me and told me that everything was going to be okay, that she was glad I came and glad that they could help me. She helped me fill out a simple form, and then walked me around, helping me to select some nutritious foods that would sustain my son and me until I could receive my next pay check. She made me feel respected and cared for in a moment when I had been feeling very alone and ashamed.
I live in Pennsylvania, in small rural community where people tend to have a lot of family and social ties. You might think that these support networks would make hunger a non-issue in our region, but that is SO not the case!
