    Would You Let A homeless Stranger Live In Your Home? Episode 213
    Niall Boylan

In this episode, Niall delves into the question: Would You Allow A Homeless Stranger To Live In Your Home? The topic arises as homelessness continues to increase in Ireland, with many families currently experiencing homelessness. The Irish government has asked citizens to take in Ukrainian migrants into their homes but has not made the same request to help its own citizens who are homeless.

Some callers believe that while they sympathize with the plight of homeless individuals, letting a homeless stranger live in their home is not the solution. While it’s crucial to address homelessness through systemic changes and increased support services, inviting a stranger into their home poses potential risks to their safety and security. Other ways to support homeless individuals include donating to shelters, volunteering, or advocating for policy changes.

Others express that they would indeed let a homeless stranger live in their home. As believers in compassion and helping those in need, they couldn’t turn a blind eye to someone who is homeless and in need of shelter. Everyone deserves a safe place to call home, and if they have the means to provide that, they would do so without hesitation. By opening up their home to a homeless stranger, they can make a meaningful difference in someone’s life and contribute to addressing the homelessness crisis in their community.

The debate about whether to let a homeless stranger live in one’s home reflects the complexity of the homelessness crisis. While some are hesitant due to safety concerns, others believe in the importance of compassion and helping those in need. As we continue to grapple with this issue, it’s essential to explore various ways to address homelessness and support those who are most vulnerable in our society.
