325 in the 320
More than 325 school aged children experienced homelessness last year within the greater St. Cloud area. However many local people don’t see homelessness as an issue in their local area. The event was created by the Social Work Association to help shed some light and support to children facing homelessness in the area.
Students and other concerned individuals gathered in Baden Park (across for the St. Cloud State Library) for a rally. Approximately 70 people walked up and down Fifth Avenue with signs showing support and raising awareness for those facing homelessness. Following the rally people were invited to listen to speakers in Ritsche Auditorium to listen to experts and those who have faced homelessness speak.
