Tips to identify hidden homeless

Homelessness can happen to anyone at any time.  The homeless are just like you and me.

Teachers,  be on the lookout for kids who:

  • are hungry at the beginning of the day since they didn’t have breakfast
  • don’t bring lunch
  • don’t return their permission forms on time, or at all
  • are not able to participate in school trips
  • wear dirty clothes
  • change their behaviour

Employers, be on the lookout for employees who:

  • change their hygiene habits
  • never have money for lunch
  • don’t contribute to gift funds
