Seems like the government is doing something.

Maybe they got the message that there really are people suffering because of homelessness and that we are not all worthless sponges on the system. Yes. Some of us work and have integrity, and when we work we try to follow the golden rule… But, I digress. Here is a link to the Opening Doors Program that is supposed to have an impact on the growing numbers of homeless people in the USA.

I particularly agree with Opening Doors aim to…

“…transforming homeless services to crisis response systems that prevent homelessness and rapidly return people who experience homelessness to stable housing.”

That way, no one is invested in the revolving door mentality, where homeless people are in and out of shelters on a continuous basis and eventually get fed-up and become chronic street people.

Freelance writer. Activist on homeless issues. 48 years old. I write about subjects that need to be examined closely and thoughtfully. The idea for Brain Sections came from reading a book about abandoned asylums. I wanted to set a suspense story in that setting. The inclusion of crazed scientists turning homeless people into zombies is what makes the story unique. View all posts by tjmcfee
