If you are interested in the plight of the US homeless, are a community organizer, hope to make a positive change in your world than this is a book you should read. Diane Nilan has deep experience on which to draw that adds depth to this book.
There’s nothing more I’d like to see then homelessness gone. Even with my devote faith I feel I’ll always live on the brink of homeless unless the government decides to help.
Nilan tells how she got into the subject Homeless, especially children’s homelessness. She ran Homeless shelters with few volunteers for twenty years. The stories she ran across: drug abuse, alcoholism, mental illness, domestic violence and more will make your head spin, but her compassion came through every time. Her words, “Those with so little have so much, and those of us blessed enough to walk with them clamor to tell the story.” She knew there was more below the surface and found the love in people.
She gave her all and still does driving her RV through the U.S. informing others of the desperate need to cure Homelessness. She started the not for profit organization “HEAR US” (Homeless Education Awareness Raising in the US). should be looked at by everyone in government. Maybe our law makers will change or make laws to stop this disease I and others have come to know.
Read, “Crossing the Line” and take steps to End Homelessness.
