Helping the Homeless

Gleaning For The World enables strategic partners across America to help hurting families living in shelters and on the streets.

Often the first step to helping someone on the streets get back on their feet is a caring hand with something to show them that there are people who care.  We provide the homeless with food and blankets to help men, women and children (yes, children) come off the streets and into a program to get them back on their feet.

Gleaning For The World delivers tens of thousands of blankets to these individuals every year.  These blankets provide warmth and comfort for those who are fighting for their very survival.  Many on the streets face horrible situations every day, including freezing temperatures, violence, sexual assault and theft.  These simple, low-cost blankets provide a comfort to those who have no hope.

Many of the homeless that we encounter are people who have fallen on hard times.  Many are veterans, many are mentally ill and cannot afford medication. We can make a difference in these men, women and children’s lives long enough for them to get the help they need to pull themselves out of this painful situation.

MILLIONS OF AMERICAN FAMILIES ARE ONE OR TWO PAYCHECKS AWAY FROM BEING OUT ON THE STREETS

It is a shocking thing to think about, but most families in the United States are one catastrophe away from homelessness.

  • 62% of Americans have no savings to cover a $500 emergency.
  • 57% said they’d used up some or all of their savings in the Great Recession
  • 48% of respondents said that they would completely cover a hypothetical emergency expense costing $400 without selling something or borrowing money.
