I recently thought to compare the number of homeless decent non drug abusing employed families i am aware of . then the number of unsold empty (for 6 mo or more ) houses that are soon to be vandalized and squatted in by not so sober citizens . then thought how can we connect the two ? there is risk involved for both parties but definite benefits for both how can we connect the two ?

my family is one of those i am refering to if anyone knows of a house that needs caretaking (we take caretaking seriously)
in this area or another please let us know

i know a good family that the working parent was recently injured in a car crash they are also between homes any suggestions can help!

I totally agree, there are homeless families all over the place. With minimum wage it's only pay check to pay check. If one wage earning worker one missed day can be the difference of paying the rent or becoming homeless. Even if both parents work and pay day care that is no better than one working. Look out your windows, take off your blinders, you will see the families that live in tents and in cars, their children playing near by. Give thought to why they are where they are, are they stranded and without means to move on? What can we as a community do to change the view of our small towns, to not be seen as a large town full of homeless and beggars. How can we as a community offer help to these misplaced families, and singles? What type of services can we put into place that can offer real help? Just one persons take on it all.

With min. wage going up, they probaly can't afford food or clothes because the companies have to pay their employees more so every thing is so exspensive now.
