those in need
Habitat for Humanity has built more than one million houses, affecting change in more than 9.8 million lives in over 80 countries around the world. Habitat is a grassroots, Christian organization founded on common ground. We bridge theological, political, racial and economic differences by putting love into action.
Regardless of how you feel personally about the homeless, one thing can be said for certain - they often have a bad reputation in society today. Whether they're viewed as lazy, addicted, or just a nuisance as they're frequently seen asking for money, it seems that they shouldn't be judged at face value.
After giving a homeless man $100, Josh Paler Lin decided to follow him around to see what he bought. Needless to say, when the first stop was a liquor store, Lin wasn't all that shocked when the man came out with a few bags.
But things are not always as they appear. This is a touching and compelling story that we at Habitat for Humanity deal with very often. People are judged because they are in need of a hand to get their lives back on track. A lot of them are in not in a position of need because they're irresponsible......but because they're victims of circumstances beyond their control.
