“Homelessness is just misunderstood.”
-Chris Benson, BB&T Bank C.O.O.
According to CAPSAW’s 2015 data, “15.6% of Waynesboro’s households were struggling to pay bills and put food on the table and 28.6% of children were living in these conditions. As these families struggled, [in Waynesboro,] some lost their homes, were forced to live in cars, find temporary housing or live on the streets [or in hotels].” (News Virginian)
“Rich and poor have this in common: the LORD is the Maker of them all.” -Proverbs 22:2
