60 Minutes report- Homeless Children in Florida

What price is America paying for homelessness?

60 Minutes presented a report on homeless children in Florida and it's now on You Tube.   This link will take you to the report 

Watch as children talk about going to sleep with hunger gnawing at their belly.  Or the little girl who blames herself for her family's homelessness.

Our community service groups have the improvement of kids' lives as our goal.  Well, here's our chance.

The video report destroys your myths about the homeless, that sleazy characaterization one conjurres up that allows one to ignore them and look the other way.  They are us.  And but for one illness, one job loss, the grace of God - we are them.
