“Homelessness Never Takes a Holiday”

No Rest for the Homeless

February 13, 2017

The Huffington Post reports on the constant services the homeless rely on, even after the holidays.

“Even though the holidays are gone and the world is returning to normal, homelessness will remain the same. The man that ate so well during Thanksgiving and Christmas will plead for a sandwich in January. Though not intentional something happens and the homeless become forgotten. The urgency to give becomes lost in the New Year. That same woman and child that needed toys for the holidays will need food this month; that child will need school supplies in August. That man standing on the corner during the day will need a blanket to keep warm on cold February nights.” – Rachel R. Jackson, The Huffington Post, February 13, 2017
