This book is easy to read and a great resource for any church or secular organization to distribute. It will change the way you look at the homeless forever. You can read it here:
Although the Rabbi and the publisher have given you permission to freely copy it, the right thing to do and a good way to help the homeless, is to buy a copy or many copies and then give them away. You may also want to download (requires some reformatting) and copy a section at a time and distribute it one section each week to your organization or class or small group. The book will last about a year that way.
