Meet Your Neighbors //

#RethinkHomelessness asked our #homeless friends to write down a fact about themselves that other people wouldn't know just by walking past them. Their answers may surprise you. 

I discovered this for myself last summer when I took the opportunity to get to know some people living on the streets. We have to get over our stereotyping of their circumstances. We really have no clue how they got to where they are without asking. To ask is to care and you'll be surprised how, once we relate to these new friends like people, compassion comes naturally. Any of us could be in their shoes!
