Friday Round-up: this week in the news

  • From the New York Times – “census data showing a big increase in the number of families living doubled up with friends and relatives suggests that another wave of homelessness may be in the offing.” http://nyti.ms/t63BzK
  • A story about one community that is seeing the increase in homelessness firsthand: http://bit.ly/rFHSOD
  • In local news, two DC organizations serving homeless women announced this week they will merge their programs:  http://wapo.st/v7FWvi
  • With more and more Americans living in poverty, many are giving less to charities: http://bit.ly/umUPWF

In Calvary news, it’s only 2 more weeks until the Walkathon! So far, 400 people are walking for Calvary. If we recruit 150 more walkers before the 19th, we receive a $10,000 incentive grant from Fannie Mae! Will you be the walker who will put us over the top?
