On the Fringe: How to Spot and Include the Most Vulnerable in Our Communities


There are so many meaningful ways to get involved with volunteer opportunities in our communities. Some of us enjoy serving in homeless shelters and nursing homes while others value assisting in animal shelters or building houses for low-income families.

Regardless of what service outlets we choose, there are so many things we can do to love the most vulnerable, marginalized people (and animals!) in the world, and many of these things can be done on a daily basis. While devoting afternoons or even entire weekends to a service opportunity is a truly wonderful thing, we can also make a huge difference by choosing to love people daily in small, but profound, ways.
