Let me add my thanks to those who have already commented. As a Board Member at Truth Ministries and as someone who has worked among the homeless population of our city for several years, I was encouraged by your fair and sympathetic treatment of the homeless community. Even then, your article represents only the "tip of the iceberg" in many ways. For example, there are over 1,000 homeless teens throughout our community, sleeping in vehicles, couch-surfing with friends, etc. My prayer and hope is that - because of excellent articles like this one - more people in our community will choose to get involved and make a difference addressing such chronic issues as hunger and homelessness.
