Forming a Community


I've been away for a while but I'm back and more committed than ever! I want to create an online community here in which we get to know the homeless so we can truly advocate for them - especially when they feel like they have no voice of their own...

With such a shortage of affordable housing, homelessness is now touching people from every walk of life - addicts, single adults, families with children - nobody is "invincible." In fact, on any given night in America there are a half million people who are homeless. Fortunately, in Philadelphia we have organizations like The Sunday Love Project and Brotherly Love Homeless Ministry; in New Jersey we have Fairview Gives Back and One Love South Jersey; and here in Pittsburgh we have Light of Life Rescue Mission. Cherished Angels serves as a support agent for all these organizations while also actively volunteering time at Light of Life.

OK, so here's a crazy question...

If there's one thing you'd want to know about the homeless, what would it be? Leave your questions in the comments and I'll start answering them.

  1. I once knew someone who went homeless due to an illness. Every penny given to her helped her stay on street longer and avoid medical treatment. So is it good to give money? How can we get the homeless mental health care? Thank you for sharing with Grace & Truth Christian Link-Up.
