Last summer, Lizzy participated in the summer internship program at City Rescue Mission. She was beginning her senior year of college and wanted to gain real-life experience in her field of interest. “I have worked with CRM in the past, but never really understood what a wonderful position they hold within OKC’s community,” Lizzy shares. “I had an amazing experience as an intern this past summer. I will never forget the relationships, experiences and stories that I gained from it.”
Through this internship, Lizzy was exposed to the realities of homelessness, and she gained a new understanding of how important it is to show love to everybody. “I noticed a huge difference in who I am as an individual,” she explains, “and also how I now view homelessness within our city due to my experience this summer.”
