Hi Everyone!Homeless Count 2023

It’s me again, Marisol, excited about my second blog entry! This week I’m especially impressed by an article by our MHCH Co-Founder, Anthony Manousos in our weekly update that features our homeless count that took place in Pasadena last Tuesday. Anthony took part in the January homeless count with activist Sonja Berndt and Mark Chase.

He added a quote by Jill Shook that resonated with me and made me wonder: What if we could all take a moment and remember that “…in God’s scheme of things everyone counts and everyone matters.” How would that change our day, our decisions, our community?

“When you’re counting homeless people—and it’s so important to do that to get the Federal funding we need—in God’s scheme of things everyone counts and everyone matters because we’re made in God’s image. Throughout the Bible you find long lists of names of people because people matter.” Jill Shook, MHCH Co-Founder
