The power of Empowerment during Homelessness and Hunger Awareness Week
During this Homelessness and Hunger Awareness Week, November 14-22, let’s take a moment to reflect on what we are thankful for, and take time to share our compassion with our neighbors experiencing homelessness, many due to flooding.
South Carolina ranks 42d overall in terms of homeless children based on economic well-being, education, health, family and community factors. St. Lawrence Place served almost 100 children last year through our literacy-based children’s program, in addition to others from Family Shelter and the surrounding neighborhood. This ranking is a statistic that Midlands service providers, like St. Lawrence Place, aim to improve dramatically.
