Homelessness is very dear to my heart as my husband is the Assistant director for Grace Rescue Mission. I volunteer there every now and then and believe it or not they are people just like we are that have fallen on bad times, bad luck or just bad circumstances. Many of the guys in his mission have served in the military, they had families and some even had high paying jobs. Some may have gotten involved in drugs, alcohol, or any other number of things that caused them to lose their families.
