In a recent online poll, we asked people, “Why do you think most people are homeless?”
— They are lazy.
— They’ve lost a job and/or home due to economic pressure.
— They are addicted to drugs or alcohol.
— They have a mental disability.
— They’ve experienced significant trauma/difficulties.
92% of responders believe that homelessness is generally caused by more than economic pressure. And they’re right.
The challenge of ending homelessness is not just in providing a home, but in helping men and women address the root causes of their situation.
That’s why we offer more than just temporary food and shelter. Your support helps us provide long-term recovery programs that include addiction recovery, job training, education, emotional healing and spiritual renewal — a total life recovery.
Your support helps us give something more. More than a meal. More than a bed. You give hope.
