One Soul Tithes So Another Soul Thrives
“There but for the grace of God, go I”
Homelessness can be thought of a couple ways. There are those who truly love the ways of living on the run, no worries, no responsibility other than finding a bit of food and a place to lay your head each night. However, the reality of homelessness is that if it weren’t for 1 paycheck there would many more without housing for their families and children.
Losing everything isn’t something that’s planned, it’s usually a sorry surprise after all resources are gone and there is no other way. With the American economy at one of it’s worst times since the Great Depression, the numbers of homeless individuals and families has risen dramatically, and no one wants them in their backyard.
According to the National Coalition for the Homeless, the reasons for homelessness are varied and include:
- Eroding employment opportunities
- Decline in pubic assistance
- Lack of affordable healthcare
- Domestic Violence
- Mental illness
- Addiction disorders
Enter organizations like Repairers of the Breach in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, a non-profit whose grassroots homeless outreach is the only one of its kind serving the area. Not only do they provide the basic needs for those who find themselves homeless, they also aspire to create an atmosphere of dignity and respect for fellow human beings.
The refuge and resource center is governed by those who use the services, the homeless, in a nurturing and uplifting way to build self-esteem and help those less fortunate to find their way back to sustainability.
The guest for the show is the Executive Director of Repairers of the Breach, McCanon Brown, who will bring listeners an honest look into what it’s like to be homeless, as well as offering ideas and solutions for citizens to be involved in all different aspects of their programs.
