Hunger and Homelessness Awareness
Homeless people are defined as those who do not have a permanent (regular) dwelling and are forced to find other solutions for their residence. Some temporarily live with friends or family members, some in improvised housing such as tents, cardboard boxes, simple wooden constructions or on the streets and some in shelters and other temporary residences provided by government or no-governmental organizations. Homelessness is present in Rural America. In January of 2017, there were 81 homeless people counted in Preble County during the Point in Time count.
Ways to Help!
