Being homeless can happen to anyone. We are all subject to losing everything…literally overnight. An illness or loss of job makes most people prone to disaster within months or even weeks. Please, when you see someone on the streets, be kind.
Support your local shelters. Act in a caring way. Feed the homeless. Here at eARTh arts we have helped persons of no means find a way to regain a lifestyle worth living and a sense of value and self esteem. They often once again become productive members of society.
    All life is sacred.
