Don’t be afraid to talk to the Homeless

Catholics across Scotland have been urged not be afraid of talking to and having coffee with the cold and lonely on our streets.

Homelessness is a growing problem in Scotland and the UK and research shows that many Scots are scared to speak to the homeless.

Vincentians may find it interesting to read an article on the Famvin website “Talking with and about the Homeless”, along with a supporting video.

The causes and experiences of the people who find themselves homeless can be complex, but having someone to say “hello”  or ask their name, might be the only communication they have that day.

So take time and don’t be afraid to talk, it can make a difference.
