Monthly Motivation: Meet Dennis


Meet Dennis. One of HCC’s homeless guests who visit’s weekly. Dennis comes in seeking enough food for a couple of days, always checks to see if there is a size 11 men’s gym shoe available, grabs a new can opener and hands out a few handshakes and smiles as he leaves. Dennis is originally from Ohio and came to Arizona years ago with his dad. After the passing of his father along with a string of unfortunate circumstances Dennis found himself homeless and on the streets. Even though Dennis’ life is full of constant struggles you wouldn’t know it by his positive attitude which saved the day at the HCC last month. On a morning when Dennis was dropping in, the HCC found itself shorthanded. Without being asked Dennis noticed the shortage of help and jumped into action. He immediately started shopping and sharing his smile with all HCC guests. What perfect timing it was for Dennis to visit the HCC and not only get items that he needed, but in return serve the needs of the HCC!
