Volunteering Thursday night at Joseph’s House in Camden, NJ was a truly amazing experience. It was a nasty, damp night that saw the lines beginning to form early – because once at capacity (which is approximately 40 men and women), unfortunately, they have to turn people away. Since the evening was not cold and thus code blue had been lifted the “code blue” shelters were closed. Joseph’s House was the only place for the homeless to go.
