Changing the face of homelessness

shoes 300x200 Changing the face of homelessnessSince the economic crisis in 2008 many individuals and families that were living close to the financial edge have found themselves with very difficult choices. Many have lost homes and have no choice but to live in their car or take refuge in shelters.

With economic conditions showing sluggish recovery there is little money to support those in need. This added pressure on already stresses charities and NGOs leaves many with no where to go.

“They just don’t want to work.”

2006 0555 They just dont want to work.

“They just don’t want to work.”

I still hear it said about homeless by many, in Europe, in South America, in Asia. In São Paulo you can see many homeless people on the street, collecting trash and pulling their carts through the town and traffic. When we went with them through the city we noticed how many people are working this way and help clean the city.
