Community to gather for homeless, giving them hope while raising awareness and money

Homeless to Hopeful to share stories, raise money

This winter has proven to be a challenge, especially for those who are homeless. 

The Emergency Shelter of NKY has sheltered close to 400 adults already this winter and Family Promise of NKY, which shelters families, has been full every night.

Statistics at the cold shelter indicate an 18 percent increase in homelessness. 

According to the 2013 homeless count, Kentucky calculated 5,245 as homeless—513 of them under 18 years old.
