In a continuing effort to raise awareness on issues impacting society, helphollyhelp.com has added a new page to keep the community aware of homelessness. Homelessness effects well over a half-a-million individuals each year.
However, a major problem is the chronic homelessness in America. More than 200,000 people are considered “chronically homeless” by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). “Chronically homeless” is defined as a person who has been either homeless four times in the past three years or homeless for a year or more. People suffering from homelessness need support.
Holly Geraci, Peter Francis Geraci and Help Holly Help have already created a grant challenge in support of Rockford Rescue Mission. Rockford Rescue Mission provides nearly 13,000 meals and 4,900 nights of lodging for men, women and children. The mission also provides clothing and other forms of support.
