Imagine being a child and having nowhere to go at night, no blanket to sleep with, no basic necessities to take care of yourself, and only the streets for shelter. This is the life of some.
But you can help.
With minimal cost and some creativity, you can give one or more homeless kids a backpack full of items that will help them get through it. Most shelters will appreciate a drop-off of such a package.
An alternative is to donate to a charity that already provides this servoce.
Project Night Night explains to people how they can help a homeless child with essential comfort items.
Each Project Night Night package includes a security blanket, an age-
appropriate children's book, and a stuffed animal. They come in portable canvas tote bag that can easily be tossed over a child's shoulder for convenience.
No child should have to go without warmth. They may also need simple comfort items, such as a stuffed animal and a book. Security, comfort, and warmth are especially important fpr a child without a place to call home.
These bags cost less each than a cup of coffee. I am a long-time supporter of this charity.
I encourage all who can to consider donating through the Project Night Night site.

“The most called-upon prerequisite of a friend is an accessible ear.” ~ Maya Angelou
Are you accessible to those around you? Be it business or personal, you should always lend an ear.
Not only can being accessible strengthen trust and relationships. But it is also vital to solving important issues.
What does this have to do with poverty or homelessness?
Think about it.
In order to be successful in getting the most help out to those who really need it, a program needs to be very accessible. Also think in terms of support and encouragement. Like Ms. Angelou says, lend an ear. Listen to your client, friend, or family member in need. I mean really listen hard and be there for them. That is the first step to helping someone succeed in life. Without the inspiration and desire to do so, all the assistance in the world is not going to matter. If someone is not encouraged, it will be a wasted effort. If you offer help that is not easily accessed, it is a wasted effort. But when you are accessible in times of need, this can make all the difference in someone's life.
So, the next time a client, acquaintance, or friend comes to you for help, be accessible.
