"To give somebody a place to live, to give them a home, is one of the most therapeutic, wonderful gifts you could ever give to someone. And now they don't have to worry about where they're sleeping tonight. Now they don't have to worry about where their next meal is coming from. They have a place to live." - Mike Brose
