Shop By Cause: people transitioning out of homelessness

Almost half a million Americans are experiencing homelessness.

Of those, 35 percent were unsheltered and 65 percent were in temporary housing. And nearly half of those living unsheltered are located in The Little Market’s home state of California.* We ethically source products from social enterprises that empower these individuals with job training, employment, supportive housing, and the professional skills needed to transition out of homelessness.
