This week Students from Jackson State University visited Georgetown Ministry Center to learn about homelessness first hand. Roy took a group out on Monday to see where people sleep on the street. Today Gunther took another group out. We seem to be developing a curriculum on homelessness. We visited sites where homeless people lived but avoided going into spaces where homeless people were at the time. Students had an opportunity to see the conditions homeless people live under on our streets. An exchange student from Yemen said that he had thought that everyone in the US was rich and wondered why the government didn’t do something about it. Were it that simple.
They were great! We really enjoyed having them.
