Longtime volunteer with Family Promise in Sacramento, Joyce Rasmussen, a concerned citizen of Nevada County, California, shares her experience and what she learned from helping make a difference in the lives of homeless families.


About the project:

These stories "caught" by StoryCatchers, Betty Louise and Susan M. Davis, inspire inclusion and common humanity with homeless people and promote compassionate action with the community at large. Stories connect us to our humanity. The Humanities, Arts, and Media communicate Story. The result is cultural transformation.This project was made possible with support from California Humanities, a partner of the NEH. Visit
