Why does Mooresville need to address homelessness?
Homelessness exists in Mooresville. Currently, within the town of Mooresville there is no emergency housing for the homeless population. Breaking the cycle of situational and generational poverty begins with the provision of basic necessities, such as safe shelter and food. When a community safety net is developed, crime rates drop, children are afforded a more stable atmosphere that is conducive to physical and emotional health, and individuals are more likely to succeed and become productive citizens. This is a community problem that deserves a community solution. Advocating and raising awareness is key to our mission. Many misconceptions about the homeless population cause people to ignore the problem. Leading educational conversations can result in a better understanding of the complications people face when trying to break the cycle of poverty.
HOMe was started by an advisory board of volunteers from the Mooresville community who began to question where do the homeless go in the winter? After performing a needs assessment and realizing a lack of emergency services for the homeless, the group became committed to developing a program that would provide supportive housing and crisis assistance for these individuals.
Therefore HOMe will provide:
- Emergency supportive housing for the homeless.
- Year round resources such as job training, mentoring, financial counseling, mental & physical assistance, substance abuse referrals and education.
