The Homeless Issue in Pawtuxet Valley has grown to epidemic proportions and it is time we look for ways to address it. Formerly, I was the site director of the Emmanuel House Emergency Shelter in Providence. From past experience, we feel we need a rescue shelter here in our area. Over the past month, I have walked the bike path from Natick Village to Anthony and have counted as many as 131 people camped out on the bike path, with an average of 80+ on any given night. As winter closes in on us, this problem also becomes a health issue. We have decided enough is enough and have begun to form a coalition to look at and combat this problem. This petition is asking for the signatures of residents of Pawtuxet Valley to show their support for the opening of a shelter and for getting these people off the streets. Help us as we begin to address these issues and close the gap on homelessness!
Thank You for Your SUPPORT!!!
