Aaron has been described as a “crazy, guerrilla homeless advocate.” He’s been fighting the public’s inaccurate views of our homeless neighbors for about 7 years now. During this time he has also fought the barriers that homeless friends face by meeting their immediate needs as immediately as possible. He’s still waiting for Ellen to call.
Sharon grew up listening to stories of her Grandpa Les living on the streets of Gary, Indiana when he was a boy.
She watched him and held him high as an example of how to treat people. If someone was hungry, he bought them a meal. If someone couldn’t pay for their groceries at the local store, he would buy them. He gave from his heart with nothing expected in return.
It’s by his example she tries to live and serve.
Brian is an insurance agent in Sherwood, AR, and believes that every human being has the right to have their needs met regardless of lifestyle choice or living situation. When Brian learned of The Van and its mission, he immediately started helping in whatever ways he could.
The 99 < The One really hits home with Brian because he truly believes “There but for the grace of God go I.”
