The Hidden Face of Homelessness


When we think of homelessness we typically don’t think of children, but family homelessness is the fastest growing homeless population. Hard-working families simply can’t keep up with the cost of living and when a family becomes homeless they lose everything: family photos, furniture, pots and pans and beds and bedding.


Did you Know

  • The average age of homeless children who walk through our doors are 5 years old and younger?
  • 80% of families who enter emergency shelter are employed?

  • There are over 3,000 homeless children in Kent County?



But YOU can change this. Your gift will help homeless children have a safe place to sleep, basic needs such as diapers, formula, shoes and blankets, and help finding their families a new place to call home.  Would you consider supporting families and children who are homeless in our community?
