Who are the homeless?
At the Goodwill Inn, we see those experiencing homelessness for what they really are…very familiar faces.
They sit beside us in church
They go to school with our children
They work at local businesses
They are mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, sisters and brothers
Each of them is experiencing homeless because of personal crisis.
