Place of Hope Ministries (St. Cloud, Minnesota) works "to see people spiritually, emotionally, and socially restored to God, their families, and society. [They] see people becoming inter-dependent, self-sufficient members of their families and communities."
Homelessness doesn't discriminate; anyone can lose their home or live in poverty. It can happen to anyone.
The facts are a little hard to read. Here are the facts in case you can't read them:
-"Each night, over 9,000 people [in Minnesota] experience homelessness."
-"54% experience long-term homelessness."
-"69% homeless women have a child under 18."
-"35% of homeless women are escaping abuse."
-"89% of homeless youth are enrolled in school."
-"More than 20,000 people in Minnesota do not have a home."
