The needy/homeless population are often one that is overlooked and forgotten. It is considered to be a statistic, it's easy for a needy person to become discouraged and depressed. This is especially true when he/she feels that nobody cares. When you choose to get down and dirty in the trenches to reach those in need, your act of kindness can go a long way. Providing for the needy won't end the epidemic, but it can reignite a spark of hope in the heart of one living through these circumstances.
