Winter is one of the hardest periods of time for people who are homeless. Mounting snow and freezing temperatures paint a picture that is not very promising for many homeless people in New York City. Thankfully, there are many caring souls amongst the City of Dreams and they have converted part of a church into an escape from the elements. From uptown, to midtown, to the lower east side, New Yorkers have been binding together to do what they can to help the thousands of homeless people who face the cruelty of living on the streets every day. Flavio Maluf knows that the weather conditions this year have been brutal, and thankfully, some of the homeless are getting a little warmth and shelter.
It is estimated that over 3,000 homeless people are facing old man winter this year and it is looking that there is more in store before he calls it quits and let’s the spring sunshine fall onto the city streets. With this said, maybe we should all take a look in our homes and see what we can do to help.
