Recently, Patrick was volunteering while the Catholic Worker Soup Kitchen was going on. It is very important to us that our volunteers do not try to diffuse conflict. Patrick saw that conflict was happening and very appropriately brought it to the attention of staff. Because of Patrick, a conflict was addressed and the problem did not blow up. Patrick knew the situation was not right and took the correct steps to handle it. Patrick has really matured and grown into his own since September. I know a shelter for people experiencing homelessness is not as glamorous as some other placements but we surely are grateful for him.
