(Re)Defining Homelessness – A Synthesis of Thoughts

Homelessness is a temporary condition that people fall into when they cannot afford to pay for a place to live, or when their current home is unsafe or unstable.

We at Bet On Me are here to change that definition and break the barriers that keep individuals from moving into homefullnesss.
