Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week – November 16-24

Hunger and Homelessness Awareness WeekHomelessness and poverty are inextricably linked. Poor people are frequently unable to pay for housing, food, childcare, healthcare and education. Difficult choices must be made when limited resources cover only some of these necessities. Often it is housing, which absorbs a high proportion of income that must be dropped.If you are poor, you are essentially an illness, an accident, or a paycheck away from living on the streets. Two factors partly account for increasing poverty: eroding employment opportunities for large segments of the workforce and the declining value and availability of public assistance.  Check the Student Calendar for the events scheduled for the week.
