On June 9th I left on a 200 day journey in my Jeep to visit 40 cities in the United States which have the highest population of people experiencing homelessness. I am partnering with the local Jeep and off road clubs in each city on Saturdays to give out hygiene kits, blankets, food, fruit, baked goods, water and other items such as clothing. So far we have done outreach to the homeless in Indianapolis, Chicago, Denver, Fairbanks, Anchorage, Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, San Jose, Salinas, Riverside, Los Angeles, Santa Ana, San Diego, Las Vegas, Phoenix, Albuquerque, Roswell, Dallas, New Orleans, Jackson, Mobile, Tampa, Saint Petersburg, Key West, Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Port Saint Lucie, Atlanta, Greenville, Nashville, Durham, Washington DC, Baltimore, Philadelphia, The Bronx, Springfield MA, Burlington VT, Calgary, Prince George and Vancouver, BC.
Bring the awareness of homelessness to people who don’t understand how people become homeless.
Encourage people to help homeless people in their own community.
Research current programs across the United States to see which programs have the most success in reducing homelessness and supporting the homeless.
Share the Gospel and minister to people.
Please join me on my journey.
