Emergency Shelter

How many cities in the United States have enough shelters for all the homeless in an emergency?

a. 0 percent
b. 5 percent
c. 10 percent—“Look, it’s the best we can do…”
d. 20 percent

a. 0 percent. Not a single city in the United States is prepared for the homeless in case of an emergency. However, the use of temporary emergency shelters is spreading, so there is growing hope in this area. Local emergency shelters need more churches to be involved in opening their doors to folks on the street in emergency situations.
