The Faces of Homelessness
Hundreds of people in our region face the prospect of homelessness every day. Every homeless person has a unique story. Many lose housing due to a financial crisis caused by a job loss, health emergency, or the end of a relationship. Some struggle with physical disabilities, mental illnesses or substance use disorders. Watch this video to meet some of the faces of homelessness.
Over the years, the No Freeze Project has provided temporary shelter to more than 1,500 men and women in the greater Windham area.
Help us continue to do this important work in our community.
