These are not good building material according to religion, but I could imagine Jesus being there. The term "the least of these" comes to mind.
I think the brother and sister were providing Christian or church care for folks that had no way to travel to a church and enter into middle-class church life. They don't have cars, some have bikes. I'm glad that some are burdened for the college age and that some care for the so-called "losers".

Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith;
