SOUTH BEND, Ind. - Students at Saint Mary's College discussed the extent of homelessness in South Bend and what they can do to help.

Thursday, a panel of representatives from Michiana's outreach programs spoke about addiction, mental illness and gender inequality.

It was a chance for students and members of the community to hear about the contributing factors to homelessness and what can be done to help.

Hope Ministries, Center for the Homeless, and the Salvation Army were among those who spoke.

They focused on how individuals find themselves without a place to live, and effective measures they have taken to help families and individuals get back on their feet.
For more than ten years, students in Saint Mary's human behavior and social environment class have hosted this type of panel.
