National Roof Over Your Head Day


National Roof Over Your Head Day is a day to be thankful for the things we sometimes take for granted, including having a roof over your head. Although the homelessness rate has been trending downward in recent years, it is still around 17% per 10,000 people.

International Day of Persons With Disabilities


"The International Day of Persons with Disabilities is marked around the world annually on 3 December, as per General Assembly resolution 47/3 of 14 October 1992, to promote awareness and mobilize support for critical issues pertaining to the inclusion of persons with disabilities in society and development.The estimated one billion people living with disabilities worldwide face many barriers to inclusion in many key aspects of society. As a result, people with disabilities do not enjoy access to society on an equal basis with others, which includes areas of transportation, employment, and education as well as social and political participation".
