Feeding the Homeless
We just wrapped up another season of providing help feeding the homeless at the VFW on 7th Ave .
The need does not end here. Homelessness exists year round and these people need our help.
Did you Know?
· Over half a million people are homeless
· One quarter of homeless people are children
· Tens of thousands of veterans are homeless
· Domestic Violence is a leading cause of homelessness among women
· Many people are homeless because they cannot afford rent
· There are fewer places for poor people to rent than before
· In the last few years millions have lost their homes
· There isn't as much government assistance as you may think
· One in five homeless people suffers from an untreated mental illness
· Many Cities are increasingly making homelessness a crime
