November 12-18, 2006, marks National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week. Advocacy efforts are sponsored by the National Coalition for the Homeless and the National Student Campaign Against Hunger & Homelessness.
Participating in National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week not only brings greater awareness to your community, but also helps to promote the national endeavor to end hunger and homelessness. The plight of those without a home can be both lonely and difficult. Addressing their struggles by organizing and participating in this week may bring greater solidarity and understanding, as well as promote future involvement … It is imperative to dispel myths that label homelessness as someone else’s problem or claim that an end to homelessness is impossible.
