About this Blog
In the Project H.O.M.E. mission statement, we state, “An integral part of our work is education about the realities of homelessness and poverty and vigorous advocacy on behalf of and with homeless and low-income persons for more just and humane public policies.” This includes:
- Providing statistics and facts about the reality of homelessness and poverty in our city and our nation;
- Exploring the social, economic, and political forces that contribute to homelessness and poverty;
- Analyzing effective solutions and their social impact;
- Combating myths and stereotypes, putting a human face on the issues.
Through this blog, we intend to engage more proactively in dialogue, reflection, and education on issues central to our mission: building solutions to homelessness and poverty, affirming human dignity, nurturing a healthy and secure community, building a just society. In an era where public discourse is increasingly poisoned by extreme partisan ideologies and demonization of opponents, we aim to redirect social conversation toward constructive and positive concern for the common good.
