On any given night, hundreds of people are experiencing homelessness in our community, including victims of domestic abuse, veterans, and children.
In most cases, people become homeless because of unexpected life circumstances and a lack of a support system. Some have discovered the cruel reality that they were only one or two paychecks away from homelessness. Some have severe, often, untreated mental health issues. Others are, or have become, chronic substance abusers.
Regardless of how it happens, once someone has slipped into homelessness, it can be extremely difficult to get back on track without assistance. Simply by feeding our meters or making an online contribution, you are ensuring your neighbors get the support they need to overcome homelessness for good.
