Matching empty homes with homeless families

Open abandoned or foreclosed homes to homeless people and families, and provide services to rehabilitate both.

Why is this important?

I live next door to a home that has been abandoned for several years. My church serves meals to homeless people who sleep in their cars or outdoors. There should be a program to cover utilities and food and help them take care of the house till they can get their feet under them again and the house can be sold.
