What Home Means to Me

Home means a warm place to stay, and a roof over your head with food and water. Home means having a safe place to live and to be able to live with your family or see them

If I didn’t have a home, I wouldn’t be able to have a safe place to live, food and water and someone to talk to when you’re scared or hurt. People who are homeless (not just homeless but most people who don’t have a safe place to live or battling something) can become addicted to drugs and when you’re addicted it’s even harder to survive on the streets!

I am so happy and grateful I have a home! I don’t know how hard living on the streets is, but it is very sad and I wish everybody had what they needed to feel safe and happy!
