Meet OUR TEAM
"I have learned that people are people. Just like us, people who are homeless come from all walks of life, all different faith backgrounds and cultures. I have also seen the systemic injustice that contributes to homelessness. Many people who are homeless were raised in poverty and their safety net is much smaller than mine. One of the missions of The Human Impact is using not just our time but our network for good."

"I make it my mission to love others the way I've been loved. I accept the men and women we get to spend time with on the streets no matter how long or often they’ve neglected me and themselves. It’s not been easy, but the sense of joy and knowledge that this is how Christ would love us keeps me going back for more and showing more and more love, grace, and mercy."

"I work for The Human Impact because my faith calls me to step outside of myself, to love others, to fight for the vulnerable, to lay aside my own comfort, and listen to & share in the joy and struggles of those around me. This was the love modeled by God for me, and so I seek to follow, albeit imperfectly, in His steps."
"Story is important. It involves relationship, opens us up to different perspectives, helps us to have empathy, and moves us to action. That’s what I get to be a part of every day with The Human Impact. I get to be a part of making people feel seen, heard and honored through telling their story."
"This work gives us the opportunity to obey what God says in Matthew 25:40. What better a job where I can walk in obedience and learn how to be a better friend every day!? I'm excited to explore new perspectives on life, learn from different experiences, listen, and learn how to become a better friend."
"Jesus told us whenever we actively love those who are hurting we are actively loving Him. I am drawn to those who represent Jesus in the midst of their pain. I love to learn about their life and am overjoyed when they invite me into their journey. I'm drawn by The Human Impact's simple but profound way of being obedient to Christ; by offering ourselves freely and fully to those whom He treasures."
"In God's design, we are all meant to be in community. We weren't made to be alone. The Human Impact embraces that and makes that the core of what we do. It's a beautiful thing to be able to walk alongside someone through the highs and lows of life, and we get to do that with our friends on the streets through THI."
