Rewards of the Work!
It would be impossible for Kitsap Rescue Mission to get very far at all without faithful, hard working volunteers who own the work in the good times and in the challenges. Each week we see individuals who may be hungry but most just want some company. I’m thankful for Spirit-filled volunteers working hard and looking for the opportunity to love in Jesus’ name!

We recommend the book “When Helping Hurts – How to Alleviate Poverty without Hurting the Poor and Yourself.” The authors Steve Corrbett and Brian Fikkert make some important points:
- Did you know that when you are working with those in need you can experience “compassion fatigue”?
- Did you know that sometimes by helping someone with their immediate needs you might actually be doing more harm than good?
- Did you know that even if you have a nice home, two cars and healthy bank account you can still be poor?
