Homelessness isn’t a government problem. It’s a problem for all of us.

Recently, the Orange County Register printed an editorial piece that greatly resonates with my thoughts on the issue of homelessness.

Crystal escaped an abusive relationship and found safety, thanks to you. During her marriage, there was one constant in Crystal’s life, FEAR.
