The question of why should we help homeless people to learn to read and write,learn skills that might help them get employment always seems to be popping up more often now. As more and more charities fight for their slice of the donating public. Well firstly I would say that people who are homeless and in that state of limbo of being in society but not being apart of it are usually the least skilled. Most are looking for ways to get to do things they know they can do with help and if we don't hold out that helping hand they don't stand a chance of fully rejoining society.
As I harp on about the way we can help people like teaching the basic life skills more and more people are entering the hidden homeless system. It does seem that we need to expand our learning and skills and now teach them skills that would be useful in gaining employment and keep them in employment.
Donations are the only way of doing this for most charities. My own goal for next year is getting employment full time and as I learn more and more each day. I have a certain drive and passion to work in the homeless sector and I think that because I have been on the other side of the fence will come in handy. So to all you that are saying why should I donate well, now you know.
