        HOMELESSNESS (http://www.iwannagohome.webs.com) Every year 600,000 families with 1.35 million children experience homelessness in the United States, making up about 50% of the homeless population over the course of a year. The threat of homelessness looms constantly over most poor families who struggle to meet their rent or mortgage payments, but there are risk factors or predictors of homelessness that suggest some families affected by the affordable housing crisis are more likely to become homeless than others. While family homelessness is more prevalent than many think, it is possible to greatly decrease and end homelessness. By our efforts of voicing the seriousness of this issue, we hope to increase awareness for those who are unable to speak for themselves. We are all a part of the community...even the disenfranchised; and I, Brick Casey, along with many of my affiliated organizations sincerely hope that we'll be able to help the homeless in any way we can. Support the Homeless today at any participating Hunger and Homelessness organization you can. Sincerely, BRICK CASEY 100

          GIVING HOMELESS FAMILIES A SAFE PLACE TO GO AND TO GROW On any given day in Mercer County there are more than 1,800 homeless people. More than half are families with young children. In fact, the average age of a HomeFront client is seven years old. These children's parents are not looking for handouts. Most are dedicated, hard-working and sometimes holding down two or three jobs, yet they still can't afford the county's cheapest housing. HomeFront provides each family what they need most. First is always a place to call home, then groceries, job skills, childcare, academic support for mom and kids – whatever it takes to be safe and secure. http://riverviewstudios.com
