Did you know?

did you know

Did you know? Homelessness is both a statistical and a personal reality for many families, veterans, and a growing number of school children – yes, even in Naples, Florida.
In Collier County a family needs to earn $18.44 per hour in order to afford a modest rental, two bedroom home.
In 2013, Collier reported 396 homeless adults and 1,054 public school students as homeless, an increase in both groups from 2012. The school numbers include families that are doubled up in housing due to economic hardship.
