    National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness

    The National Coalition for Homelessness and the National Student Campaign Against Hunger and Homelessness will come together one week before Thanksgiving during National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week to help raise awareness and, more importantly, to help end hunger and homelessness.  During the week of November 16–24, 2013, events will be organized around the United States to bring communities together and raise awareness about hunger and homelessness and to help people understand the difficulties homeless individuals face. Schools, communities, and cities will take part in National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week. 

    Popular awareness events that will take place include “One Night Without a Home” where individuals sleep outside in front of a city hall or a college campus. Individuals can also organize or participate in activities that include collecting food or clothes for the homeless, raising funds, or driving advocacy for those who are at risk of becoming homeless or are homeless. 

    During November, the Center for Public Service invites you to gain a better understanding of homelessness and resources available to the homeless by exploring our events, news, polls, and resources sections. You can also explore our stories and articles featuring faculty, students, and organizations committed to preventing or ending homelessness or helping those in need.
