Among the local leaders I honored this year at my “Pink Flamingo” BBQ was Rob McCann for the outstanding work he has done combatting homelessness at Catholic Charities Spokane. He joined the organization in 2000 and has served as its head since 2005.
His whole life has been one of service. Pope Francis has called for a revolution of tenderness – and that is what Rob McCann is doing – building tenderness into measurable action to make people’s lives better. Now Rob is on a special mission – to end homelessness in Spokane. He’s led the way in providing Housing First – that gets people off the streets into permanent places to live. Thank you, Rob for all that you are doing for us.
