Re: “City withdraws support for homeless shelter

hmm... interesting dilemma. In some way it seems that what this Anita Beaty person is attempting to do is to not let the public forget, as we so often do, that others in this society are very much suffering and in need. She is doing this by making sure that the homeless people she deals with remain in plain view of the public rather than hidden away somewhere. That, on the one hand is admirable, but on the other hand it doesnt seem that Peachtree and Pine is actually doing much to move these people out of homelessness and on to self sustainability. In this latter way, their perpetual homelessness kept in plain view is almost becoming a collective martyrdom- whereas each person might be better off individually if they were to leave Ptree and Pine and go through another shelter system, staying at Peachtree and Pine may enable the group as a whole to collectively keep the issue of homelessness on the map (as well as create a small, dependent society.) Still a dilemma.
