What causes a person to be homeless?

While no one event usually causes homelessness many factors keep a person homeless longer than necessary, some of these factors include:

  • Poverty
  • Lack of affordable housing
  • Personal crisis -- medical, disaster, eviction
  • Physical /mental illness or disability
  • Substance abuse
  • Job loss or decline in income
  • Domestic violence and abuse
  • Unemployment
  • Abandonment/deterioration of family

How can I help to support your activities?

Of course monetary donations allow us to provide critical assistance to those in need, but we also are in need of non-monetary gifts. Our volunteer program provides a wonderful opportunity to get involved with our organization and contribute to the health of our community.
