Adam Berendes

Hi, my name is Adam Berendes.  I will be a senior at Marian University in Indianapolis and I am also in the seminary at Bishop Simon Brute College Seminary.  I have been volunteering here at Ozanam this summer in an intern-like role.  I have been working with Donna Brown the case manager, and I have been exposed to many different learning opportunities.  During my three years in Indianapolis, I have had many opportunities to work with the homeless, but never in the capacity that is available here at Ozanam.  


As the saying goes, "out of sight, out of mind," it is easy to live our daily lives with no recognition of the struggles of poverty.  To truly live out our Christian call to serve those in need, Ozanam provides an opportunity in the way that is one of a kind. 


I cannot think of a better place than Ozanam to feed the hungry, give drink to the thirsty, welcome a stranger, clothe the naked, or care for the sick and imprisoned.  I will forever be greatful to the staff, residents, and mission of Ozanam Family Shelter for the wonderful experience that I have had over the course of this summer, and I will continue to pray for the sustained service that Ozanam provides to the homeless community of Evansville.
