Metro Ministries works to get folks who are homeless off the streets and help them to become productive residents.
Amber Fish, a pharmacist from the Coastal Bend, has been volunteering her time to the non-profit group. Her day job is working full-time as a pharmacist consultant, but two or three times a month, she works at Metro Ministries.
"I learned about the clinic through a physician that comes once a month, so I come here and I dispense medications if we have the medications for patients," Fish said.
Since 2008, Fish has been helping dispense medication to patients for ailments such as allergies, colds and other infections.
"When I moved to Corpus, I wanted to find something to give back to the community with the skill set I have," Fish said.
She said she feels blessed. One of the benefits of volunteering is that the other volunteers have become like her second family.
"I think God blessed me with the ability to become a pharmacist, and this is one way I'm giving back to my calling and to God," Fish said.
