Homeless In America - What Can Be Done?
homeless shelters, people that want to help and links to help make us think.

“There is a great need to modify the training of professionals who deal with vulnerable people. Homeless people, particularly street children, should be regarded as unutilised but potential assets rather than burdens to society.”

Cities around the country are reporting record numbers of homeless people
entering shelters or sleeping on the streets.

Picturing the Homeless, on Their Terms - NPR Show

All Things Considered, October 24, 2004 Gary Clark doesn't call himself a photographer. But over the past few years, he's felt compelled to take pictures of homeless people -- those "on the edge," he says. His work has brought a rare brand of celebrity to people used to living anonymously in harsh conditions. Listen Here

Half a million members visit Clark's Web page, "Mashuga" -- Yiddish for crazy -- to see the images that result. Viewers from around the world post dozens of comments for each photo, creating a running subtext.

Hungry for Music (HFM) began April 15, 1992 as an annual benefit concert to help the homeless. The concerts were organized by Hungry For Music founder Jeff Campbell, with the help of Washington, D.C. area musicians and music organizations. The contrast of street musicians and homeless street people led to the initial concept of Hungry for Music - to assemble D.C.'s best street musicians and other local musicians for a concerts to benefit the homeless and underprivileged. The concert had a dual purpose - to raise money and collect food for the National Coalition for the Homeless and to give street musicians some well deserved attention and exposure. - Hungry For Music
