Could it happen to you?

Imagine a young woman, working hard but still living pay cheque to pay cheque and then a recession, and you’re laid off and your car is stolen.

This is exactly what happened to Shay Kelley.

Although this story takes place in the United States, it could easily have taken place anywhere in Canada. So many people live pay cheque to pay cheque and if something were to happen, an illness, a job loss they could easily be homeless. It has been said, that many people in Canada are just two pay cheques away from homelessness.  Many of us are blessed with family and friends who would help but some people are not that fortunate.

I hope this story inspires you to look at homeless people differently and with compassion because we rarely know the whole story behind the person on the street and what brought them there.
