ANDERSON: A brief history of poverty and homelessness


Hope Inc., feeds thousands a year as does the Center for Lay Ministries, the food kitchens, churches and scattered pantries. And probably the biggest feeder of our hungry daily is our school system. 

The solutions aren’t easy but we as a community of people need to seek them. Poor people will “always be among us.” I do believe that, but I also believe what we do about it is how we will someday be judged ourselves.

— Barbara Anderson is executive director of Haven House Services Inc.
