You will see many people hug each other.  Don't feel like you have to do anything you're not comfortable with. SS was 9 months old before Wayne hugged the first person.  He had already known that person 2 years and the hug came at that person’s initiative.  After the culture was created, it became easier, but relationships take time to reach the point where hugging is appropriate.  By now hugging is almost taken for granted for some volunteers, who may begin hugging anyone who wants a hug on their first night.  However, every volunteer is different and every person we serve is different.
