” Share your food with the hungry, and give shelter to the homeless. Give clothes to those who need them.”Isaiah 58;7
Studies show it’s cheaper to provide shelter than it is to have our citizens on the street.
Leaving Homeless Person On The Streets: $31,065.
Giving Them Housing: $10,051.
Twenty years ago, Park Center applied for a grant for this very purpose. Now, 2 decades later, there are more homeless people.
Fort Wayne has MILLIONS in a LEGACY FUND. Homeless citizens are as worthy as assistance as rich people going to a brokerage firm.
