Item description for We All Need a Little Help: The Face of Homelessness by Jeremy Reynalds...
Overview THE HOMELESS ARE ALL AROUND US . . . He stands on the hot asphalt holding up a handwritten cardboard sign that reads, "Homeless vet will work for food." She wheels a rusty shopping cart filled with glass bottles and old newspapers down a crowded downtown street. They carry a beat-up suitcase, a bedroll, and an infant, and survey the grassy areas of the city park before they spread their blanket under a large maple tree for the night. As CEO of Joy Junction, a family homeless shelter in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Dr. Jeremy Reynalds has assisted many who have nowhere else to go. He shares the journeys of some who have traveled, with the Junction's help, from destitution and hopelessness to recovery and faith. We All Need a Little Help puts a face to the homeless struggle. Read the adventures and "divine encounters"-surprising stops along the way that offer lessons on life, love, and God.
