HEY IF WE CAN GET THE SAME RESPONSE FOR EVERYONE WHOM SIGNED THE LAST PETITION I SIGNED; TO DONATE ONE DOLLAR FOR THE HOMELESS. WE WOULD HAVE THE HOMELESS IN HOMES THAT ARE EMPTY IN EVERY CITY. I KNOW FOR ONE (BEING A PERSON WHO WAS A HOMELESS TEENAGER) KNOW THAT IF YOU GIVE THEM A HOME. THEY WILL BE APPRECIATIVE AND TRY REAL HARD TO FIND WORK OR GO TO SCHOOL TO LEARN A SKILL. THAT IS WHAT THEY REALLY NEED. A SKILL! SORRY GUYS, I SIGNED THE PETITION LAST NIGHT AND WANT YOU ALL TO KNOW IT...

HEY IF WE CAN GET THE SAME RESPONSE FOR EVERYONE WHOM SIGNED THE LAST PETITION I SIGNED; TO DONATE ONE DOLLAR FOR THE HOMELESS. WE WOULD HAVE THE HOMELESS IN HOMES THAT ARE EMPTY IN EVERY CITY. I KNOW FOR ONE (BEING A PERSON WHO WAS A HOMELESS TEENAGER) KNOW THAT IF YOU GIVE THEM A HOME. THEY WILL BE APPRECIATIVE AND TRY REAL HARD TO FIND WORK OR GO TO SCHOOL TO LEARN A SKILL. THAT IS WHAT THEY REALLY NEED. A SKILL! SORRY GUYS, I SIGNED THE PETITION LAST NIGHT AND WANT YOU ALL TO KNOW IT SADDENS ME TO SEE PEOPLE HURTING/KILLING CHILDREN.
OVER ONE MILLION PEOPLE HOMELESS PEOPLE ARE ACTUALLY TEENAGE CHILDREN. JUST LIKE I WAS A HOMELESS TEENAGER. WE NEED TO HELP OUR YOUTH AND KEEP THEM FROM BECOMING PEOPLE HURTING OTHERS BECAUSE NO ONE CARED ENOUGH FOR THEM TO GET THEM THE EDUCATION THAT THEY NEEDED. I STRUGGLE EVERY MONTH, BECAUSE, I HURT MY BACK AT WORK AND AM UNABLE TO WORK NOW SINCE JUNE. NOT CRYING FOR A PITY PARTY, JUST USING MYSELF AS AN EXAMPLE!
I REALLY COULDN'T GIVE A HOOT IF YOU CARE ABOUT ME OR NOT, BUT, THE HOMELESS NEED THAT SECURITY OF A HOME, ROOF OVER THEIR HEADS. I GO THROUGH THE CITY OF LAFAYETTE. I SEE A BUNCH OF BUILDINGS EMPTY. WHERE HOMELESS CAN HAVE SHELTER THE BUILDINGS ARE LEFT EMPTY! IT SADDENS ME! I WAS A CHILD AND LEFT OUT IN THE COLD.... I TELL YOU IT WAS NOT FUN! ALL I WANTED TO DO WAS USE DRUGS TO TAKE THAT PAIN AWAY.... THE EMPTINESS IS THE WORST PART! ANYWAY WHAT I AM SAYING IS, I NEVER HAD A GOD OR A NETWORK SUCH AS FACEBOOK AND NARCOTICS ANONYMOUS. CURRENTLY I ATTEND MEETINGS IN LOUISIANA AND CLEAN FROM ALL MOOD ALTERING DRUGS EVEN ALCOHOL - BECAUSE THAT TOO IS A DRUG - 12 YEARS ON APRIL 7 2012. IT TOOK DEVINE INTERVENTION FOR ME. I DIED A FEW TIMES BEFORE I GOT CLEAN IN 2000. I AM A GOOD PERSON WITH ONE COMMON GOAL WITH THIS ARTICLE, TO GET OUR TEENAGERS HOME!

Before politicians and the economy puts its people first, we will have to rely on each other in our communities, to help those in need. Support the organizations that are on the frontlines helping those most in need, shelters, food banks, Salvation Army, the Red Cross. So many of us indulge in more than we need, and could spare enough to make a difference in someone else's life. A simple gesture can go a long way. We need to be more attentive to those around us, help our neighbors, our...

Before politicians and the economy puts its people first, we will have to rely on each other in our communities, to help those in need.

So many of us indulge in more than we need, and could spare enough to make a difference in someone else's life. A simple gesture can go a long way. We need to be more attentive to those around us, help our neighbors, our schools who often are in a better position to recognize children in need. What is this world coming to if we can no longer protect our children and provide for them?

I live and work in Saudi Arabia as an ESL Teacher, and many people in the world think that the streets are paved with gold in American, and cannot believe American kids are homeless! And yet... they are... But, we can fund wars, give money to foreign countries like Egypt, Pakistan, and more, without a thought to hungry children in America. I think this is very sad, and something needs to be done about it. We can do better...

This is disgraceful. The wealthiest in America should be ashamed of themselves.

Homeless children are not only in the USA, they are also in the UK. But exactly the same as in the US, the Governments of both do not care, nor will they do anything to put it right.

I just want to take every homeless child home with me! Children should be protected and given a stable, loving foundation for a happy life.
