Kenny LaPoint :: How do we, as individuals, help the homeless?

  • “Don’t just hand something to someone…have a conversation,” encourages Kenny LaPoint, Housing and Resident Services Director at Housing Works in Central Oregon. Spend time talking to the homeless to get rid of stigmas associated with them, and increase understanding of their situation. A little bit of confirmation and value through human contact can go a long way. “That’s another thing that causes folks who are homeless to end up being homeless longer – because they lose value in themselves.”
