Habitat Participates in Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week

A local display has been assembled by members of the Cape Area Housing Committee in the lobby of Wehrenberg Theatres Cape West 14 Cine designed to bring awareness to the plight of those in our community who experience lack of food and shelter on a regular basis. The display can be viewed through November 28th.

Earlier this week, Habitat for Humanity’s Executive Director, Al Stoverink, along with representatives from several other organizations and community leaders, joined together to kick off National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week, presenting the display and shedding light on several issues that affect the homeless community, including mental health, substance use, and food insecurity. Mayor Harry Rediger also read a proclamation, approved by the City of Cape Girardeau, in recognition and support.

While this week is a great opportunity to raise awareness and volunteer, it is important to acknowledge these issues live on year round. Cape Area Habitat for Humanity is proud to partner with over 20 other organizations in being part of the Cape Area Housing Committee, a group actively involved, throughout the year, in promoting housing resources within the Cape Girardeau and surrounding communities. If you are interested in learning more about the Housing Committee or want to be involved in the homelessness solution, please contact us at hfhc@capeareahabitat.org.
