How Long Homeless?

How many people are homeless for less than two years?

a. 20 percent
b. 40 percent
c. 50 percent
d. 70 percent
e. 100 percent
f. Any of them who come to Jesus.

d. 70 percent. The far majority of people who are homeless get off the street as quickly as possible, needing just a little bit of help to do so. Because of the infrastructure available to families, they tend to get off the street almost immediately. Of course, there are some, about 30 percent, that remain on the street longer. They are called the chronic homeless, and about half of Anawim is made up of that population. And there are plenty of Christians who are homeless—come to Anawim and find some for yourself!
