Homelessness Sunday is here again

September 26 2009
This year‘s focus is on preventing people becoming homeless Homelessness Sunday 2006 will be held on Sunday 29th January. The day unites churches across the United Kingdom in drawing attention to the effects of homelessness. This year the focus is on preventing people becoming homeless. The organisers of this day liken prevention to "stopping people falling into the river, instead of waiting until they are almost drowned before pulling them to safety." The groups involved include those who offer housing advice, such as the Housing Justice Alliance of Housing Advice Centres, those which help people keep their homes by visits, like the Scottish Churches Housing Action, and those providing food parcels to help with tight budgets. Last year many churches marked Homelessness Sunday with special services, and practical action such as collection of sleeping bags and blankets.
