Homeless Families

Homelessness is defined as living in housing that is below the minimum standard or lacks secure tenure.  Due to the COVID19 Pandemic, the faces of the homeless has and will dramatically change.  Millions who have already lost jobs due to the pandemic and can no longer pay their mortgages and rent are temporarily protected by a stay through the government; however, it is temporary.  Therefore, one of the “2020-2022 Program Keys” of Les Gemmes, Inc. is to put into place initiatives that will address “Homelessness” in our communities.
