I am huge believer in outreach and my regular readers know that I have a soft spot for helping the homeless. The homeless is a very misunderstood population. What you see hanging out on the street corner begging for change is only part of the story. I am very happy to see the GOP trying to help the more invisible part of this population.
Did you know that a majority of Fairfax residents who are homeless are also employed? Increasing the minimum wage may seem like an easy fix, but it can feed inflation and rarely lifts people out of poverty. This week, we will announce our April Sponsoring the American Dream project which will focus on sponsoring those in our community who need a hand up.http://tinyurl.com/SponsorTheDream
