When answering the question, what can the average person do to help the homeless? After being homeless, and advocating for the homeless, and involving myself in what homeless people go through everyday, I feel the people out there who volunteer their time at places that help the homeless, and support homeless and poor outreach ministries at their church or places of worship are doing important work that we all need to do. Make sure you vote for fair minded people who have the poor of the city in mind. Always help Street Sense vendors, poor, and homeless people who will work and do something besides panhandle their way through life. We thank you, and are grateful for your hand up and words of encouragement the help end homelessness everyday.
