Raising Awareness

When I think about raising awareness, getting the word out to people, I ask myself what good comes from it?  The good, I think is KNOWLEDGE inspires one to ACT.

Contemplate this:

            •  1,000 students in Lancaster City schools are experiencing homelessness,
            •  1,783 students in Lancaster County have experienced homelessness during (2011-12)

            •  Approximately 170 pre-school aged children in our community also are experiencing homelessness

As I meet with homelessness service providers in the city, I asked what children need the most.  The answer:  a “home.”  Housing costs money.  This inspired me to ask you to help.  The Sole Challenge was born.
