Facing Homelessness

Our community is building a new awareness about our relationship to homelessness and to each other.

When confronted with the complexities and hardships of life lived on the street we often find ourselves overwhelmed and left feeling at a loss for what to do.

When we turn away from each of those moments, we deny our compassion, isolate ourselves, and quietly reinforce the negative stereotype against those living on our streets.

It does not have to be this way. As a community of compassion we can face homelessness by choosing to see the beauty of person in front of us rather than the issue that overwhelms us. We can give empathy a voice, trusting in our own creativity and compassion to find the answer that fits each moment of interaction.

Assemble Hygiene Kits

Children and families affected by poverty, homelessness, or natural disasters need essential hygiene items.
You can help provide encouragement, hope, and essential personal care products by purchasing and assembling World Vision's Hygiene Kits.
When your group hosts a Hygiene Kit event, you become part of the recovery process by providing simple gifts of hope.
