Did you know . . . . . at a February 2015 meeting of the House of Representatives in Washington DC, the Homelessness Caucus was informed that 2.5 million children – that’s one in thirty in the U.S.—were homeless during the 2012-2013 school year. This “America’s Youngest Outcasts” report is based on a count of homeless students done by the Department of Education. Increases in homeless children were counted in 31 states and overall the number of homeless students increased 8% over the previous school year.
Immediate Need Our Family Promise Van has seen better days. Thanks to Jack at Emmett Head Auto, the van has been kept running longer than we might have expected. Its age, and wear-and-tear have now begun to take their toll. We are listing a Van as our most important high priority requirement, so please join me in prayer and action to find a new van for Family Promise.
