Project Homeless

Whether we like to admit it homelessnes is a huge problem throughout the whole world. It is said that around 2% of the world's population is homeless, while it may not seem like much if we put a number to it that is around 150 million that is that they know of. I know that this number will never be 0 but I am going to do everything in my power to get that number down as low as possible. I once heard a homeless man say, “I just want to be seen, I just want people to remember that I'm human and not just some object on the street” The more homeless people I talk to, the more I realize money is not all they need. They need that reminder that they are seen. They need that reminder that it’s not too late to start again. Too often do we walk past a homeless person and ignore their existence. Sometimes a simple hello does a lot to remind them “hey i see you.”. We often think that giving a little bit of spare change is enough and don’t get me wrong I'm sure it helps, but we can and have to do more. Project Homeless is Everybody’s Somebody’s way of doing more.

Our current goals are simple and shouldn’t be that hard to acheive. We want to provide a homeless help pack locally in our city of Indianapolis to as many homeless people as we can. Our Homeless help packs will include the following: 

  • Hoodies
  • T-Shirts
  • Hats and Gloves
  • Blankets
  • Hand warmers
  • Socks
  • Gift card
  • Resource Guide
  • Bible
  • Handwritten letters
  • Toothbrush/toothpaste/deodorant/lotion 
  • Snack pack
  • Book Bag
