Friday Round-Up: This week in the news

  • Miracle, a local college student, shatters many stereotypes of what it means to
    be homeless…and she is just one of the many women Calvary has helped this year. She is the focus of this article in the Washington Post. http://tinyurl.com/ybdxc3q
  • An interesting article from the Chicago Tribune discusses H1N1 as it relates to homelessness. http://tinyurl.com/yhmrh86
  • District Daily gives a run down and insight into the recent cuts to homeless services in DC. Calvary lost $75,000 due to these funding cuts.  http://bit.ly/8EniVk
  • First-timers cram homeless shelters in Detroit. This is only going to get worse as the cold weather continues. http://bit.ly/7R5zVM

**We’re excited that in January two women will be moving into new apartments at our Sister Circle program. And we’ve started a new Facebook Campaign to help us raise $1,000 to buy them the new beds they need before they can move in. Join the Cause, make a donation, and help us spread the word!  http://tinyurl.com/ycogzrw
