Consider the term, “HOMELESS.” We have all had hard times but have you ever wondered where you would sleep tonight…where your children would sleep tonight…where the food to fill their stomachs would come from?
In this land of plenty, “Homeless” doesn’t just mean “no house or apartment” it means no “HOME,” nowhere that provides security, roots, comfort, or a solid foundation. Many homeless families face a daily struggle to survive that creates feelings of helplessness, anxiety, suffocation and desperation. Second Presbyterian is among more than 25 congregations and synagogues who partner with the Interfaith Hospitality Network (IHN) to provide meals and a place to spend the night for up to four homeless families. IHN Day Center’s staff helps families find long term solutions: permanent housing, employment, educational opportunities and other resources to regain their independence. The IHN receives referrals from individuals, community resources, and the 211 Connect 2 Help line which provides human service resources.
