Imagine being just a paycheck away from becoming homeless with no support to help in a time of crisis. Loss of employment, an unexpected medical bill, or an auto repair leaves you without enough money to pay your monthly bills… putting your home and family security at risk. As adults struggle, so do their children.
Children growing up in the culture of poverty face many challenges. Frequently, they don’t get enough sleep or enough to eat. These children might not have had the opportunity to bathe nor have their clothes laundered. Often these children are deprived of meaningful opportunities to form healthy attachments with adults and other children.
