Homelessness, foreclosure, eviction, poverty What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you read those words? Chances are you have a negative reaction. Perhaps even fear. Hear the word “homeless” and what probably pops into your head is the image of a drunk, dirty, unemployed adult sleeping on a sidewalk or under a bridge in downtown Atlanta. Read the words “foreclosure” or “eviction” and you think of a deadbeat, an irresponsible fool who spends his money foolishly, and not on his mortgage or rent. And someone living in “poverty” is someone who’s lazy, relying on society to pay their bills. Don’t feel alone. You’re in the majority — but you’re wrong.
