10 Who Make a Difference: Amy Crowley

ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- Amy Crowley volunteers her time at Pax Christi Catholic Church in Rochester.

She works with Interfaith Hospitality Network and other volunteers to provide a week of housing at the church for homeless families. For 10 years she has been organizing with area parishes transportation schedules, meals, companionship and overnight hosting.

Rooms usually used for classes in the church are transformed into bedroom for guests.
Crowley is a firm believer in taking care of everybody, especially the poor and homeless.

"Service is really looking with your heart and seeing what Jesus calls us to love each other and so that it's really investing yourself into other people in the community," Crowley said. "Things that we take so for granted really, our eyes are opened by seeing what people, what people need at a time when they're very vulnerable."

When hosting the families for a week it takes 55 volunteers to make the program run smoothly.

Through Crowley's leadership, the church is able to provide housing for families in need four to five times a year.
