From Housed to Homeless in an Instant

We’ve all heard it before, the number of people that are just “one paycheck away from homelessness”.
It’s important to understand that the trip from poor to homeless can happen in an instant. When you’re living on the edge it only takes one thing to happen – one unexpected bill, one health crisis, a cutback in hours worked – one thing, one simple thing that many would consider a mere inconvenience, can mean the difference between living with a roof over your head and scrambling for emergency shelter.
