Have you ever wondered how can a person with a college degree or any advanced educational degree can end up homeless ?
Call me a conspiracy theorist, but the banks and public school systems (including many univesities) appeared to have partnered up to "create" a homeless class of people.
This program is for anyone who lives in a shelter, facing eviction, forclosure, or might be living in their vehicle. In addtion to those people this program is for squatters and House Hijackers who are attempting or have attempted to steal someone elses home.
In this installment of "It's My House" we shall discuss the most fundamental Life Skill on the planet that should be taught in school, but is not taught in school and that is: HOW TO BUILD YOUR OWN HOUSE.
150 years ago the average man or even family unit had the "basic skill set" of building your own house ! It is one of the first Laws Of Nature. The first thing that ants, birds, lions, fish, and anything living on the planet is preprogramed to do is "build their own house".
Even slaves built their own homes and they did it without bank finacing.
The simple solution to ending homelessness is to learn how to build your own house.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development reported that homelessness dropped by nearly 4 percent from 2012 to 2013, according to HUD’s Annual Homeless Assessment Report. The report found that 610,000 people were homeless in January 2013. Sixty-five percent were in shelters; the rest were living outdoors, either on the street, in cars, or in tents. Officials in more than half of 25 large and midsize cities agree. They reported a 3 percent rise in homelessness in 2013, according to a U.S. Conference of Mayors survey in December. Moreover, cities expect homelessness to spike in 2014 because of looming federal funding cuts in food stamps and the end of long-term unemployment benefits after Christmas, which could push those barely making ends meet into homelessness.

September 11th, 2014 marks an anniversary of the day the world watched the United States of America tend to an act of terror on it's own soil. According to New York News & Politics, it's estimated that over 10,000 children lost their parents on September 11, 2001. Imagine learning your parents are dead due to a suicide bomber!
Imagine learning your parents consider you dead to them (upon learning you identify as gay or lesbian). Daniel Ashley Pierce's parents said just about as much in this (now viral) video.
A recent Rolling Stones article: The Forsaken: A Rising Number of Homeless Gay Teens Are Being Cast Out by Religious Families offers us a critical look at the terror some parents strike in the hearts of their kids when they learn of their sexual orientation.
In this episode, we'll talk about this terror with an expert who deals with youth who face homelessness due to a variety of factors, including coming out.
Meet Raquel (Rocki) Simões, Program Manager for Avenues for Homeless Youth in Minneapolis MN. She manages the GLBT Host Home Program. Rocki invites us to explore deeper aspects of youth homelessness briefly outlined in her blog-post on VillageQ.

Offering a fresh perspective on an age-old practice in Prayer, Keller addresses questions about our conversations with the divine that scholars from the twelve disciples to C.S. Lewis to Flannery O’Connor have all grappled with, including: How often should we pray—and what should we say? Why do some prayers go unanswered?”
ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Timothy Keller is the founding pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Manhattan, which he started in 1989 with his wife, Kathy, and three young sons. For over twenty years he has led a diverse congregation of young professionals that has grown to a weekly attendance of over 5,000.
