Join us to learn about a Day in The Life of a Homeless Person

Homelessness is on the rise while inflation at its highest in 40 years. The emergency shelters are reaching their full capacity as we approach the New England cold months. The homeless population are required to be out of the shelters for a good amount of the day to encourage them to find jobs, be with their families, educate themselves with a skill, take care of their mental and physical health and most importantly to try to be part of the society again. Due to mental health and substance abuse, about 30% of the population are not participating in the above activities. They end up sitting at doorsteps, sleeping on park benches, hanging out on sidewalks, museums, outdoor concerts, train stations, fairs, and the public libraries.
