When Kim Cain, Amanda Wright and Rachel Pung decided to stand on corners of M-57 and M-91 with cardboard signs to share the statistics of homelessness, they weren’t sure what to expect. Their goal Friday afternoon was to spread awareness of the severity of homelessness. One sign stated that approximately 99,975 people were homeless in Michigan in 2015. Another sign shared that the average age of a homeless child is 7.6 years old, while another sign informed of the 2,723 infants born into poverty every day. Yet another sign sought to raise awareness that the main reason people experience homeless is job loss — not substance abuse.
