Life can be lonely when there is no one

there to help you during difficult times.

It’s even more lonely when you cannot

find someone to help give you the needed

energy when you’re down and getting back

on your feet again does not seem possible.

 

United Families of America is here to help those in need and are seeking to get out of their current predicament.

 

How many times have you heard, “Don’t give money to the homeless, they will only blow it on booze or drugs!”  Is this really true? What about those with pets? In fact, homeless people with pets tend to give more to their animals than themselves. 

 

The truth of the matter is that an imperative part of a life well-lived is helping those around us. It’s our responsibility to help our fellow human beings when times are tough

 

So what are the needs of someone who has, unfortunately, become homeless? More than anything, they need our emotional support to help get back on their feet again. This is more important than food, clothing, or money. The most common need of any human being is dignity, kindness, understanding, and encouragement.

 

The majority of us avoid eye contact with the homeless, ignore them when they speak to us, and/or act uncomfortable with any type of interaction. Simply making eye contact and acknowledging a person in need can go a long way in vastly improving their day. Thanks for reading the story CEO Levi Morris Jr.
