Section 1:  LEARNING

What is homelessness?

How does someone become homeless? What happens to someone when they become homeless? What does a person experiencing homelessness need?
This section of Backyard Missions will answer those questions and give your family a basic understanding of homelessness. This section is divided into two parts: Part 1 will discuss the causes of homelessness and part 2 will discuss the challenges of homelessness.
