Speaking up for the Marginalized

Dispelling the stigma surrounding the most vulnerable people in our nation.


We think sometimes that poverty is only being hungry, naked, and homeless. The poverty of being unwanted, unloved, and uncared for is the greatest poverty. We must start in our own homes to remedy this kind of poverty

- Mother Teresa

Although I’d like to offer solutions to resolve homlessness I could only begin to make an attempt and anything that I could come up with would fall short of a real solution. Homelessness is a problem made up of social and economical factors which are broad and complex. The best I can do is to give insight into the struggles that are bestowed on individuals and families through misfortune.

More often than not people do not choose homelessness. Although it is commonly believed that homeless people are addicts and junkies- it is simply not true of all people who are faced with the loss of their home. There are many individuals that through a series of misfortune become homeless. Many individuals are just a paycheck away from facing homlessness themselves.
