Joe Rockey Bowers writes: “I was introduced to Shepherd’s Staff a few years ago when I was living in a tent and a friend told me I could do my laundry and take a shower there. Since then they have helped me with prescriptions, laundry and showers and also they have been able to get me glasses and since I have trifocals I would be lost without them. I’m sure I could go on an on, but I think you get my point. They are there to help less fortunate people like me, out. Now that times have gotten harder on everyone, there may be some things that they may not be able to do because of limited resources but rest assured if they can help they will go out of their way to help. Thanks.”..."PS - If you need someone to talk to, they are there for that also."
