Did you know that the homeless rate in the midlands region of South Carolina increased from 1,368 in 2009 to 1,621 in 2011 (a 17% increase)? We are living in a time where people from all walks of life can be affected by hard times. It does not matter who you are and where you are from. The perfect life you once knew of can be taken away from you at any time. No one is beyond experiencing hard times.
