Many of us take shelter for granted while there are many faces who struggle
every day to find a place they might one day call "Home". The more people that
learn of the reasons behind men, women and children becoming "Homeless",
the less that will have to endure its senseless hardship.


U.S. Statistics

*Poverty is not always the cause behind losing one's home as an accident, a medical crisis, and a lost paycheck can all translate into not having a place to call home next week

*Children who are homeless are one of the fastest growing segments of the general homeless population as for every four homeless persons, one of them will be a child.
