No One...





No one puts 'BECOME HOMELESS' on their 'To Do' list.

No one in the educational community offers a 'GATEWAY TO HOMELESSNESS' as part of their curriculum.

No one in the careers field suggests 'HOMELESSNESS' as a vocational option.

No one encourages their child to 'BE HOMELESS' when they grow up.

NO ONE!


And there's a reason for that...


Homelessness

Is not an aspiration

It's a dire

And desperate

Choiceless situation

So don't judge

Don't ignore

Don't walk on by

If someone's out there

Struggling

There is a reason why

But you don't need to know it

Their business is their own

Just maybe stop

And have a chat

Help change homelessness

To HOME.
