The importance of giving back
"Give a man a fish, you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime"
I came to Set Free Care in 2005, just as a guest for Lunch. I wasn't in a good way and was introduced to a man that would ultimately help to change my life.
I met Mal who invited me to be a part of a discipleship program to help me get off the street, and into a lifestyle of giving back to the less fortunate.
I began to spend a lot of time in very deep conversations with homeless people. I tried to understand and empathize with some of the incredible hardship that these people had faced. This lead me to pursue a career of supporting people and I began to work in the community services sector in different government and non-government roles.
