As the Economy Goes...

"The economy is in chaos, we're in an unofficial recession, and Americans are worried, from the homeless to the middle class, about their future." - Michael Stoops, National Coalition for the Homeless

According to a story in today's Boston Globe, cities across the country are seeing a rise in homelessness as a direct result of our current economic woes.

Here in Durham, North Carolina, Genesis Home has certainly seen an increase in the numbers of homeless families needing shelter and supportive services.

Instead of worry and trying to control what we cannot, let's do what CAN: Vote. Live within our means. Pray. Breathe. Think creatively about how to give back.
