The number of homeless individuals in our country is startling.
On any day there are over a half a million (500,000) homeless people either sleeping outside or in an emergency shelter or transitional housing program across the US.
Homelessness isn’t a personality trait – it’s an unfortunate circumstance… and one which ANYONE could face. Could you imagine spending night-after-night without a warm, safe place to sleep? How about experiencing constant pangs of hunger? Or… being treated as a second-class “defective” person?
Think about those statistics for a second. Everyone has a story. It’s up to us to provide the happy ending.
