‘You Can Make a Difference’
Helping the homeless relies on communicating to donors that the problem is big but not insurmountable.
- 44 percent did paid work during the previous month.
- 21 percent received income from family members or friends.
- 30 percent had been homeless for more than two years.
These statistics are humbling. They show that even with help from family and friends, even when homeless persons find work, it’s not always enough to get them off the streets.
