Keiser University Sarasota campus Medical Assistant students recently visited the Sarasota Resurrection House, which provides a day of rest for the area’s homeless population. Class members shadowed volunteer counselors, conversed with clients, and learned a great deal about their neighbors.
“Many tears were shed and hearts were touched by what we’d experienced,” said Professor Gertrude Mueller.
Founded in 1989, the non-profit, faith-based Resurrection House serves as a day resource center for the homeless of Sarasota County and has served over 30,000 clients. Its range of services include showers, restrooms, laundry, counseling, medical treatment, food, clothing, veteran’s assistance, and more.
