We talked to Mike Kittredge and Megan Carlson of Homeless Services Center in Santa Cruz, CA about homelessness and ways people are helping right here in our community. Did you know that on average, volunteers weigh less, live longer, and are generally happier than non-altruists? It's true! Give back right in your own community, and help us build a better Santa Cruz, even if you only have one hour a month. For more information you can go to http://scshelter.org.
