At Raising the Roof, we are dedicated to finding long-term solutions and creating awareness about the issue of homelessness. We believe that best way to find a solution to end homelessness is to teach our children about it. This blog post is aimed to be a resource for parents, families, teachers and educators…to teach kids of all ages, about homelessness and start a dialogue on the issue.
