30 Days Homeless
This hits me in so many ways. I am from Ohio and seeing this makes me cry. I am grateful that someone is kind enough to try to find a solution and he is taking his time everyday to do this. I have prayed for the homeless and that God can help them keep them strong, warm and help them discover what they need to in life.
A little info about this journey:
Over 60% percent of kids who “Age Out” of the system go homeless. For 30 days in January he lives homeless.
His mission is :
1. Raise awareness by giving an inside vantage point of what it is like to live without a home.
2. Bring renewal to my own spiritual life, and to the lives of those who follow.
3. Raise support for New Family Tree Ministries who are providing and furnishing housing for kids who are “AGING OUT” of the system and have no where to call home.
Suppose a brother or sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to him, “Go, I wish you well; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about his physical needs, what good is it? James 2:15-16
I am asking people to give and support this effort by contributing as much as they possibly can in order to bring relief to this issue.
Each year thousands of vulnerable youth across the nation turn 18 and “age out” of the foster care system. While their peers look forward to prom night, graduation, furthering their education and have hope for the future, the “aging out kids” are faced with a harsh reality. They are now alone and solely responsible for determining where they will live, what they will eat and how they will survive in the world.
30 Days Homeless needs everyone to help get the word out so we can help bring relief to children in our backyard who have no family, home, or way to transistion from a foster care
