Helping the homeless…yes or no?

Help the homeless? Yeah, we all should say yes to that. The reality is though that the homeless are often seen as bothersome and people tend to allow the homeless to fade into the background and most often don’t help. Based on this, it’s important to acknowledge the presence of homeless and to make a personal decision on how best if is for you to “help”.

I think a lot of us become jaded by stories of pan-handlers making more money than some employed people, or we might assume that all homeless people are addicts who are on the street because of poor choices. Unfortunately, many people lose their homes due to circumstances beyond their control… job loss, health issues, mental illness. The challenge is to distinguish between the “deserving poor” and the scammers.
