Many of people who want to get involved in ending homelessness realize that it’s important to find ways to truly “see” and “hear” from people and families experiencing homelessness. The experience of serving people in need offers an opportunity to learn more about individual circumstances and the systemic problems that sometimes keep people in a state of chaos and, ultimately, homeless. The following is a short list of examples of unique projects that are finding ways for congregations and communities to help those in need. Please share your ideas with us!
