Christmas Day is a national holiday, although it seems to fly in the face of "Separation of Church & State." For those "most in need", Christmas Day National Holiday is one of the toughest times of the year. Not because of the lack for means to buy gifts for everyone. But, because those that are labeled "homeless" do not have the usual places to go, and be somewhere out of the weather.
As much as I wanted to get started early (and did start), make this years holiday listings more complete than ever before. I must apologize for waiting until the last minute before "doing whatever I can" to make these listings as complete as possible.
My reasons are directly connected with my personal circumstance while developing this Project. My story of the past nine years is more than interesting. It is actually compelling in regards to the very backdrop plagues our community. The social failure that is "homelessness." "Homelessness" is a symptom of a sick society. And, it continues because precious few even begin to look at the deeper social issues enough to do something personal. I am committed to blogging and podcasting in the near future to say more about this, and other subjects.
This time of year can be fun and/or challenging for most everyone. For those most in need, it is especially tough. Not having a place to live, and public buildings being closed for the holidays means having an extra difficult time finding a place to spend time during the day. There are a few special events, as well as the usual Free Meals that are still open on the actual national holiday.
Help us maintain these listings by letting us know of what is incorrect or missing.
