Last night 61 people found shelter at the Rescue Mission of the Mahoning Valley. (Of those 61 people, 8 were children.) Right now we are collecting new undergarments for all sizes of men, women and children. If you or a group are able to help - please let us know! Have a blessed Monday.

A friend sent this link to a NY Times article about HUD's Homeless Prevention & Rapid Re-Housing Program (HPRP). This program has been in place in Mahoning County since last year and is administered through the Catholic Charities Regional Agency. Here is but another example of agency collaboration to address homelessness in our community.
