Government figures place millions below government-drawn poverty lines all across the U.S.. Unemployment, like poverty, is found everywhere.
It affects the salaried as well as the hourly paid laborers, skilled as well as unskilled, professional as well as non-professional, affluent workers as well as the working poor, with ruinous results, unemployment soon confronts many of its victims with extreme poverty, disintegrates self confidence and breaks apart many households.
Growing numbers of employees are finding that "job security" is a myth and through no fault of their own are joining the echelons of the permanently unemployed.
Star of Hope is a Christ- centered community dedicated to meeting the needs of Houston's homeless, by focusing on spiritual growth,
, life management, and recovery from substance abuse. The organization was started in 1907 by a man named Reverend Dennis R. Pevoto in Since it's opening the Star of Hope has helped thousands of Houstonians get back on their feet.
