As we prepare to launch a major initiative to serve the homeless populations of the world, the Vincentian family needs to know the answer to the question, “Who are the homeless?” Then we need to share the truth.
Steve Lopez of the LA Times paints a clear picture.
“Three straight nights I slept in the front seat,” said Edythe Russell, who is creeping up on 80. “My knees hurt so bad, I couldn’t do a fourth.”
That’s when Russell scrunched an air mattress into the cargo area of her scuffed-up PT Cruiser and began sleeping there, with one dog on either side of her for companionship and warmth. She avoids liquids in the afternoon to limit the number of times she has to crawl out in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom.

Do you know the truth about the homeless of your community? Share the truth with .famvin and we’ll share it with the Vincentian Family. People who say “I am Vincent” share the truth.
