One afternoon, a young adult arrived at the LUM Office front door, and asked, “Is this where I get a bed?” I introduced myself and explained to him that intake for the Emergency Shelter had ended for the day, but he could get on the list for the next night. In the meantime, I let him know that he was welcome at the Winter Warming Station that night at 9 p.m. (open three hours early that day due to dangerous wind-chill temperatures) and that he should go to the day shelter at LTHC now. He then shared that he always prefers to sleep outside — but since it has been so cold — he wanted shelter for the next few days, but doesn’t want to go to LTHC because he doesn’t want his data in the federal system. He was so appreciative that he insisted on shaking my hand, assuring me that he had just washed them. I shook his hand and was shocked at how cold it was. I offered him gloves and his eyes lit up. Before he left, I gave him gloves, a scarf, two pairs of socks, a knit hat, toe warmer, hand warmers, prayer cards, a sandwich and a bottle of water. I also made him promise me that he would use the Winter Warming Station that night. This individual was brought to LUM for us to give him just a little bit to get him through the week. And I was humbled to offer whatever I could.
