Students Hold Out Helping Hand to Homeless To the homeless who come to Brown Memorial Church and Christopher's Place for help and a hot meal, Hopkins students are friends. Three times each week, a group of student volunteers cooks and serves meals to those in need. Most of the time, the men and women just want to talk. "Some of them are very lonely," said Alice Chan, co-director of the student-run Hands to the Homeless program. "They don't really have anyone to talk to." Chan said the homeless men and women and the Hopkins students accept one another openly. "My first time [at the shelter] was very intimidating," she said. "But now it's all very friendly." To volunteer for Hands to the Homeless, call Chan at 243-2782, or Robert Anselmi at 243-8764.
