A few years back, Patty and I volunteered to help serve meals at Dallas’ Austin Street Shelter.
Patty’s been a licensed professional counselor (a psychotherapy designation) for more than thirty years, and had very active practice until she took semi-retirement a couple of years back.
I wanted to tell you that up front so that you would know that there was some education and experience that backed the piece I wrote for Active Rain just after the experience. Here's that piece.
Since then the priest, the Rev. Beulah "Bubba" Daily, who founded and operated the shelter for its entirety has retired. She lives with her daughter.
The other priest, her husband, the Rev. Harry Daily, who was there for so many years died unexpectedly.

The Austin Street Shelter made enormous contributions and showed others how to take care of the homeless. A book and a movie about these extraordinary people’s lives brought great attention to their work.
One of my friends reminded me of the Active Rain piece I had written. I thought this would be a good time for an update, although a sad one. Bubba is living with her daughter and Harry is in Heaven.
