Today is World Homeless Day, an event designed to draw attention to issues of homelessness.
“The purpose of World Homeless Day is to draw attention to homeless people’s needs locally and provide opportunities for the community to get involved in responding to homelessness, while taking advantage of the stage an ‘international day’ provides.”
How you can help:
- educate people about homeless issues
- celebrate and support local good works
- highlight local issues
I serve on the board of our local homeless services organization. This is a cause I care about deeply. I urge you to learn more about homelessness in your community and look for ways to help.
