Unfortunately, homelessness is on the rise and has been for the past two decades. By its very nature, homelessness is impossible to measure with 100% accuracy but according to the U.S. Conference of Mayors report 2008, 19 of the 25 cities reported an increase in homelessness over the previous year. More specifically, 16 cities reported an increase in the number of homeless families. And the recent foreclosures crisis has had a dramatic effect on families and individuals. (National Coalition for the Homeless) Our guest Brian Jenkins has lived his life in giving to others. In 1996, beginning only with the will of service, a few of his own personal finances and a bullhorn, Brian and his wife Shandai, started feeding the homeless in Philadelphia from the trunk of their car. Two short years later Brian founded Chosen300, a ministry that now serves the needs of the homeless individuals and families around the world. The mission of Chosen 300 is to unite people despite our differences in race, ethnic group, denomination, social class or economic class for the common good of helping others. Brian’s personal story of triumph is just as encouraging as he was raised through the foster care system after the death of his mother when he was five years old. WHERE THERE IS A WILL THERE IS A WAY! Join us for a lively and engaging discussion and learn how you can help support the homeless!
It's good to talk.
