Earlier this month I had the opportunity to meet with an advocate from a local non-profit society that supports members of the community in need of financial assistance from the government. I was impressed with her dedication to a job that must surely be an uphill battle in these times of government cut-backs to social programs and welfare funding. Her clients are people often marginalized by society and I was especially touched by the respect and dignity with which she treats them. As a result I was inspired to create Community Advocate With Sturdy Shoes.
