Open Doors Slavic Ministries has begun fundraising to establish a shelter for the homeless in Sacramento County. Most of our community is unaware that California had about 170,000 homeless people -- the highest number of all 50-states in 2005.
Have you ever seen lots of tents in a local park, or homeless people sleeping at the street end? They are there for a variety of reasons; however, we can make some generalizations about homeless people.

On average, one out of ten of them are women, one out of six are under 25 years old, and one in 14 - over 60.

That being said, there are many homeless elderly persons, who are left out to die on the cold streets. I recently met a homeless man, who does not receive any form of Assistance from the US Government, not even food stamps. The reason is that he has a criminal record. With food and clothing prices, at some places being more so expensive, those elderly people find themselves hungry for some periods of time. And there is absolutely no one to turn to, especially if they have no relatives or no children. Those pictures below are to inspire you to help the aged in our community. Those are the people we are working with.
