HOW YOU CAN HELP
• Understand the problem. Many people define homelessness inaccurately, assuming that someone is homeless only if he or she lives on the street. But homelessness refers to any lack of regular, stable housing. Homeless people may couch surf, rent rooms by the week or live in a vehicle. Understanding the proper definition is key to addressing the issue because it is the first step in realizing how widespread the problem is.
• Volunteer. We welcome help from volunteers. Pitch in with administrative duties, sort clothing, cook meals, assemble furniture, teach a computer class, help with a job application or sponsor a field trip. The opportunities are vast, and many require only a small investment of time.
• Donate. Sister 2 Sister Inc., work with homeless and displaced teens and are in constant need of supplies and resources. The next time you are shopping, why not grab a few extra items to donate? Or organize a donation drive.
More resources for outreach and prevention means more homeless youths can be helped in a meaningful way. But expansions in programming take money and the involvement of our community. Support today to end homelessness. Be A Voice and Be Heard! Monetary donations also are appreciated, and we guarantee 98 percent of the contributions go directly to helping homelessness.
