Who We Serve

Unlike any time in America’s history, today’s homeless are primarily women, children, and families. Contrary to popular belief, the majority of today’s homeless are not the people seen on the street. Today’s homeless are the “Invisible Homeless” who are without a place to live due to unforeseen life circumstances. They are parents who had to choose between paying the rent or paying for a daughter’s medicine. They are mothers who removed their children from abusive fathers. They are parents who lost their job because a manufacturer closed a plant. They are pregnant teens who were thrown out by angry parents. They are emancipated foster youth without a place to live or a means of support. They are senior citizens and veterans who no longer have a family to care for them. They are abused children removed from their homes for their safety. They are victims of natural disasters and other catastrophes. They are veterans returning from recent wars.

These homeless simply need a temporary home to regroup, catch their breath and rebuild their lives.
