Mankind Is No Island
Seven hundred thousand people are homeless on any given night.
Seventy-six percent of homeless people who receive needed services like substance abuse treatment, education, and job training stop being homeless.
Eighty percent of homeless people who received subsidized housing remain stably housed.
However, less than one out of three people who are eligible for low-income housing, receive it.
For homeless youth, educational outreach programs, job training, and transitional living programs have proven very successful.
Forty percent of homeless people are veterans and the US Department of Veteran's Affairs has two major programs in place to provide health care, assessment, and referral to homeless veterans.
Studies show that these programs do help.
Homelessness is a condition that we have the power to end.
You can help to provide both temporary shelter and permanent solutions for the homeless by choosing a charity working to end homelessness.
