From his early days in Britain, to the current days of
running the largest emergency shelter in New Mexico, Jeremy Reynalds, Ph.D. has
been on a path helping the homeless.
Homeless in the City II: A Mission of Love provides a timeline from Dr.
Reynalds' early calling, from when he was still a young man in Britain, to the
opening of Joy Junction and the trials between.
Cataloging his journeys, experiences and challenges, Dr. Reynalds seeks
to provide insight into the inner workings of an emergency shelter. In this book, Dr. Reynalds also addresses the
finer points of dealing with neighbors, media, politicians and residents.
Dr. Reynalds devotes the last half of the book to stories
collected from numerous individuals helped by Joy Junction. These stories provide insight into the people
who Joy Junction has helped, as well as those now employed by Joy
Junction. By showing that each
individual presents a different set of circumstances, Dr. Reynalds is very
adept at putting a face to homelessness.
Written as a resource to anyone who wishes to set up an
emergency shelter, this is an invaluable tool to help avoid pitfalls inherent
with creating this type of organization.
It is also a great reference tool for gathering information about the
diversity of homelessness.
