In "Love Connects Us," a Tapestry of Faith program
Participants will work together to raise awareness in your congregation about homelessness. Decorating a "box home" with information about homelessness highlights the fact that some people have nothing more than a box to live in.
Distribute paper, fact sheets, and markers at work tables. Suggest participants choose facts you have gathered, rewrite them on the colored paper, cut the paper into shapes, and glue or tape the paper to the box. If you have Internet access or other resource materials, invite some participants to find some additional facts.
Participants may also wish to write messages such as "What if this were all the home you had?" to draw attention to the needs of homeless people.
When the box home is completed, display it in a prominent location in your congregation.
