HUNGER & HOMELESSNESS PREVENTION PROGRAMS
"If you can't feed a hundred people,
then feed just one."
POLCARE Hunger and Homeless Prevention Programs are designed to support the planning, delivery and coordination of high quality services to the hungry, homeless, and those at risk of homelessness in our community. Homelessness and poverty do not discriminate.
No one should have to worry about whether they will have food on their plate or a roof over their head. But the reality is that hunger and homelessness are widespread problems that affect far too many people.
