“This is exactly how we imagined it,” said Dr. Henry, one of the doctors who will staff our new medical clinic for homeless families with children, as she walked into the room where Ken, the fundraiser for the Homestretch shelter, and I were screwing nuts and bolts into a medical bed.
“When we said we would build a new clinic, we would literally build it with hammers and screws,” she said. We laughed.
