HOMELESSNESS

“For Five Years I Had Nowhere To Go. It Was Humiliating And Degrading To Be Identified As Homeless, Judged As A Source Of Potential Violence Or Crime, A Societal Pariah…” — Patricia May

Homelessness not only affects the low income and marginalized members of society; it affects all of those who live within a community and requires a community-wide response. Just Compassion seeks to identify avenues to effectively share information and to develop opportunities for discussion and action to meet the challenges faced by all.
