Volunteers from the community drive a First Methodist Church program in Salinas, California, which provides meals, counseling resources and occasional shelter to many who have nowhere else to go. Basic rules, a generous spirit and a firm hand keep the program alive with minimal outside funding, creating real alternatives for a visible population in need.
