ELIMINATING homelessness

Women Like Us Foundation's efforts to fund and support women's leadership in eliminating homelessness in important to the future of our country.  Homelessness is a catalyst for and can be a result of the growth of sex trafficking.  It becomes a reality that the only way to be cared for is to sell one's body and a homeless woman or girl can be lured into this way of life. Children who have been in foster care, living from relative to relative, sleeping here and there and then showing up for school are considered homeless.
