Acts of Kindness in the Neighborhood is an endeavor to build relationships between formerly homeless individuals and the faith communities in their neighborhoods. Most all of us desire to experience ourselves as making a difference in our world for the better. This is also especially true of those who live with mental illness. The unquestionable mandate of faith communities is to help those who cannot help themselves. Opportunities are being built for the formerly homeless and members of the faith community to reach out in love and caring to those who cannot help themselves.
