June 10, 2014 – Faith & Society: Homelessness
Season 5, Episode 11 (Series: 2 of 2)
According to the Department of Children and Families there are over 45,000 homeless in Florida. With this episode of Friends Talking Faith with The Three Wise Guys we conclude our two-part series on faith and homelessness. In some areas of Florida, the number of homeless persons is going down but the number of those without permanent shelter in Central Florida has risen dramatically. Today it’s almost double what it was six years ago. We discuss the role of faith communities – and the role of government – regarding homelessness. Also we look at how big this problem is in the Central Florida community. We discuss what can we do about it. Our guest on this program works to bring faith communities, businesses, and local governments together to solve this issue.
