Mike's story
Welcome to volunteering. Volunteers are a vital and integral part of the fight to end homelessness. Mike Tuohy, a Crisis volunteer

I’m Mike Tuohy and I’ve been volunteering with Crisis for 38 years.  I’ve seen Crisis change completely in this time, but one thing has always remained constant; and that’s how volunteers are a vital and integral part of the fight to support homeless people and to end homelessness.
