Homeless Resources

For the least of these - By Hannah Harrison (American Family Association [AFA] Journal staff writer) - March 2021 – “The King will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for the least of these brothers and sisters of Mine, you did for Me’” (Matthew 25:40, NIV). An unhealthy plague is sweeping across the nation. It’s not only COVID-19. It is also homelessness. Currently, an estimated half-million people are experiencing poverty and homelessness in the U. S. Many face hard times due to job loss, health issues, or poor life choices. Others struggle with addiction and regret while living on the streets. However, many Christ-centered rescue missions are responding to the hurting. These ministries answer the desperate calls of homelessness by providing shelter, food, and the hope of the cross. (The missions covered in the article are included below.)


...Homelessness by the numbers: According to a study by St. Francis Inn in Pennsylvania (stfrancisinn.org):
    34% of cities surveyed by the U.S. Conference of Mayors identified domestic violence as a primary cause of homelessness.
    22% of the adult homeless population suffers from mental illness.


A 2019 annual assessment by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (hud.gov/press) revealed that:
    37,085 of veterans were reported as homeless.
    53,692 families with children experienced homelessness.
    35,038 unaccompanied youth and children were homeless.
