Day 351: Homeless Emergency Project
There are so many factors that can lead to someone being homeless, making those organizations that are working hard to help people get back on their feet so important. Day 351’s charity is no different, the Homeless Emergency Project’s goal is to be the last shelter ever has to use, by providing services to help individuals and families attain their self-sufficiency again.
Homeless Emergency Prjoect (HEP) is a registered 501 (c)(3) charitable organization. Since 1986, their mission has been to provide homeless and very low-in come individuals and families with housing, food, clothing and support services necessary to obtain self-sufficiency and improved quality of life. The goal is to break the cycle of homelessness and be the last homeless shelter an individual or family ever has to access.
Anyone can experience homelessness: youth, adults, elderly individuals, families with children, and veterans living in rural areas, small towns, suburban neighborhoods, and big cities. At first glance, the problem of homelessness seems simple, but in reality examining the reasons behind homelessness requires an understanding of many other issues. Mental health, substance use, physical disability, and physical health are often factors. Affordable housing, access to social services, and education and employment are also critical to both understanding and solving homelessness.
