Homeless children finding sanctuary in schools
A great NYT article on what many homeless children face in many U.S. suburban cities. With the face of homelessness changing in the last two years, shelters are seeing an increased percentage of children. Last Friday I met a professor from VCU who volunteers at local, Richmond shelters by tutoring school age children in math, science, and grammer. I was humbled by his compassion for these resilliant and often forgotten treasure of our community. If you have a few minutes, this article gives some insight into what some of the issues these children face daily.
