A Market Watch article on how to help people who are homeless this holiday season quotes Elizabeth Bowen. “At a bare minimum, make eye contact and treat people experiencing homelessness like people,” she says. “By the same token, Bowen said, “don’t assume you know what any given person experiencing homelessness needs or wants at one moment in time — instead, try to provide help or services driven by their stated needs.”
