Rebuilding our Communities
The homeless populations across the nation are increasing at a rapid rate, in cities both large and small. With the still fragile economy, rapid rate of inflation, and often unlivable wages—many families find themselves behind on rent, facing eviction, living in shelters, in their cars—or even on the street. Not to mention homelessness that is the result of unexpected unemployment, natural disaster, or terrorist attacks that leave youth, adults, and families struggling to survive.
