Homelessness is something that leaves countless Americans on the streets at night looking for a place to stay but to be exact it was estimated 553,742 Americans go without a home at night. Thats a rate of about 17 people experiencing homelessness for every 10,000 people in the U.S. population. That is 553,742 people to many to be on the street with no roof over there head. This was from a study in 2017 and as we go faster in to the future we don't know who much that number will grow. Homelessness leaves people out in cold weather snowy weather and any thing possible.
This issue hit me had when I was out feeding the homeless with a man by the name Rob and a man came up to the van to receive his meal when he said this "Theres about five more of us living over there". While he said that he pointed to a patch of bushes. That hit me hard and it mad me think how many other people go without a home or food.
Here in Upstate South Carolina we have some place that will help out with Homelessness. These place are doing great things one of these place is Miracle Hill in Spartanburg and some other locations around the Upstate.
