Homelessness is a serious social, political and economic issue affecting 3.5 million people each year with 35% of that number consisting of families with children in the United States. Economic factors such as lack of affordable housing, low income and lack of affordable medical care are just some of the problems contributing to homelessness. Political factors however have also led to an increase in homelessness. In the 1960's homelessness was nearly eliminated through federal housing programs and services. However in the 1980's these programs had their budgets reduced by more than 50% and were no longer able to provide a safety net for individuals trying to get back on their feet. There are also social and medical factors that contribute to homelessness. Many lack access to affordable care for illnesses which leads to long-term issues exacerbated by their poverty.
Non-profit Organizations such as the Humility of Mary Shelter in Davenport Iowa though are taking a quiet stand against poverty and homelessness. Their emergency shelter with 65 beds provides a means to help transition homeless into permanent housing and get individuals the support they need to become more emotionally, mentally and physically stable. However the shelter needs continuing support and donations in order to provide services, hygiene products, clothing and other items needed to assist area homeless.

By participating in this Stressless charity event customers can make everyone more comfortable this holiday season.
