Re: “City withdraws support for homeless shelter

Chris Campbell - you have time to write a response about an article? Why not look for some help with your drug problem? What's not fair is that people CHOOSE to use and abuse drugs and then become homeless which becomes a community problem. This issue seems insurmountable because the shelters are filled with people who actually are "down and out" and need a hand up and those who linger for ridiculous amounts of time taking money and other resources only to squander it for drugs. What the hell is that about! That's selfish. You know the majority of folks giving are middle class citizens who are living within their means and often giving a dollar or two that they could have used on their lunch while they were at WORK making a living for their family - to pay rent, to buy groceries, to pay insurances - not to fund a habit. SHAME ON YOU! Everyday I drive past P'tree and Pine and wonder what can be done to really help. Apparently not much unless we can identify what the need really is: homelessness, recently released prisoners or folks with drug problems. All who need help but can't be clumped together under one umbrella. I want my money to help those who do not want to continue to be homeless, not a paycheck to support the joys of no responsibilities accept to wait for handouts. I always learned that God helps those who help themselves.
