Simple living is about making choices. VSC volunteers live on a modest stipend.
“‘Living simply’ is a statement that there is another way to live other than the type of lifestyle promoted by the greater society. I think that simple living shows that poverty is not a mark of shame, but that there is more dignity in a simple life, so long as it is rich in love and spirituality. By consciously & actively living simply, I hope that my life can say that everyone has choices as to how to live their life, maybe not so much in wealth and riches, but a choice in attitude and responsible decision making.” —Eleanor Han
“Live simply so that others may simply live. Our program is here to do just that. The people you serve with will change your life and you will change theirs, what greater richness is there than that?” -Kevin Nenning, 2012-13
