More than 18,000 Kansans won't go home tonight. They live (and sleep) on
the street. The numbers of homeless are growing. There is no safety in
those numbers. The homeless are exposed to the elements as well as to health
risks and dangers of all kinds. Nothing can really change in their lives until
they have a place where they belong, a place where they have security, a place where they can grow and develop a sense of self-worth.
From shelters to rentals, to Case Management programs to prepare for home-ownership, to government-sponsored Rapid Rehousing Programs, Mid-Kansas CAP has a number of resources available to help the homeless off the streets, or to keep families from ending up there in the first place.
