Compassionate Care for America's Homeless

United States Homeless

According to End Homelessness, there are an estimated 553,742 people homeless in the United States. Approximately a quarter of these are children experiencing homelessness on a given night.

The Rapid Relief Team supports Homeless Events all across The United States. These events provide a direct connection between America’s homeless and the services they need – including doctors, women’s health services, hairdressers and legal counsel, to name a few. Our volunteers provide catered lunches and dinners for the homeless, along with all volunteers in attendance. Below are a couple of examples of the many homeless initiatives that RRT has supported.
