I volunteer with Health Care for the Homeless in Baltimore, staffing the help desk and providing clients with information on where they can find food, legal aid and other services. From my experiences, it is clear that Health Care for the Homeless effectively fills a community need. On a recent morning when I was volunteering, an elderly woman entered the building and promptly fainted right in front of me. A physician and nurses raced to her, administered first aid and transported her to an ambulance that would take the woman to a nearby hospital, then they resumed their work, continuing to see patients. Sadly, such an occurrence is common here, as the organization's patients are usually desperately in need of medical care.
