"To Sister Rose and to All the Volunteers at Mother Teresa:
Just a line to say thank you for all the help, clothes, shoes, food, and all you have been a great blessing to me and my wife. We enjoyed our stay here in Corpus Christi, even though we were homeless we felt very Blessed to have Mother Teresa as a place to rest and gather ourselves while we were on our journey home. Our only hope is we can share part of the Blessing you shower us with others on our journey - we will always keep you in our hearts and prayers, even as we travel on. Please keep us in your prayers also. We will always remember all you did for us and we greatly appreciate all you did. Love in Christ" - Jerry and Karren

"What Mother Teresa Shelter has done for me? It has lifted me up spiritually, mentally, and physically. For a man who had forgotten about Jesus Christ the shelter and the staff have reminded me about His glory and power and His love. Thru what the sisters and the staff have provided for me and others like: shower, laundry, clothing, and hot food, shelter from the rain, and heat, cold weather. The use of shelter's address for my mail and use of the phone for job search and the all-around understanding of everyday problems and personal problems. So to sum it all up, Mother Teresa's means safety, peace and escape from the evils of the street for me." - J. Mireles

"I like Mother Teresa Shelter because it is a place where one can be fed physically and spiritually with snacks from youth people from churches on the week and breakfast. The staff including Sister Rose are heart warmed people also Sister Ramsay." - Mary P.
