When we meet some of our SILO friends, they are homeless or on the verge of homelessness. We meet them where they are- living out of their car, a tent or a friend’s living room. We get to know them to better understand their situation. If they are interested and there is availability, we work together to find them stable housing. In the meantime, or for those who choose to remain homeless, we ensure they have needed supplies to remain healthy such as easy to prepare food, toiletries, blankets and sources of heat. We are regularly surprised by how many people in our small community struggle with housing stability, including families with children. SILO works to ensure our homeless friends feel social connected and stable.
