42 Days strives to be a major driver in the gears of change in the fight to end homelessness and poverty. The education of individuals about social issues connected to homelessness and poverty is only the first step. Compassionate individuals that are also empowered with knowledge and experience can now go out into the community and make broader change, thus putting the "ripple effect" into action. If the issues of homelessness and poverty were at the forefront of a community's action, human dignity for all individuals would be restored, social issues would be relieved, and economic prosperity could be felt by all. We strive to be a catalyst in this action through creating educational experiences that ignite a fore of action to make this happen.
