Homelessness Links

As regular readers know, I'm one of those Christians who could become real grinches about Christmas, griping that Jesus was probably born in October or even September, and the stable was probably sweaty rather than snow-covered, and Jesus didn't tell people to celebrate His birthday anyway...except that the Christmas season is the time when people in the subarctic part of the Northern Hemisphere do need to think about the needs of homeless people and missions that try to help them. So we need for our "Season of Giving" to be celebrated when it is.

With that in mind, here's a link to an article about homelessness. I've not checked all the statistical links in the article, but some of them should be updating for this winter (most were posted last winter).
