Homelessness / Poverty

Homelessness is a problem in which people live without consistent shelter and on the streets. Usually, this is because the person cannot afford adequate food and housing, but occasionally mental illness, such as schizophrenia, plays a role in homelessness. There are homeless shelters in most major American cities where the homeless can go to receive aid and a place to sleep but many shelters don't have the resources to handle all homeless cases.

GW Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week 2010 Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week began in 1972 when a group of students at Villanova University organized a coordinated week of activities to educate the campus community, increase community service, and build campus and community relations. Held every year the week before Thanksgiving, more than 500 campuses and communities organize and participate in several unique, educational events, including fasts and sleep outs, community service events, community dinners and hunger banquets, and fundraising and food drives. At the George Washington University, the Office of Community Service partners with the Human Services Program to plan a week of activities designed to challenge the GW community to confront the issues of poverty from a local, national, and global perspective. Professor Peter Konwerski's students work in groups and each form committees around a different aspect of the week, including a food drive, Help the Homeless Walkathon, poetry slam, and hunger banquet.
