10 Ways to Show Your Incredible Heart
Academic development naturally slows down when basic necessities like access to running water, food, and a bed cannot be provided. Lack of stability, security, and shelter causes attendance problems, sleep deprivation, high stress, and nutritional, health, and hygiene issues.
There are a variety of significant ways to support these young students even if you are not a professional educator working directly with homeless K–12 or college students. If someone wants to donate money to the effort to end teenage homelessness, there are many deserving organizations that will accept it, and if someone wants to volunteer their time, there are a plethora of creative groups who are actively looking for volunteers.
Nothing needs to be done from scratch or by one person. Think about forming alliances to share skills for a greater impact, generating benefits for both communities and enterprises at once. Engage workers who want to be a part of an organization that values social responsibility to enhance brand recognition and goodwill.
