Hi I'm Rick from Orlando Florida. We have seen an explosion of the numbers of men women children vets and on and on and on. The existing social service groups are consistently be hit with budget cuts. So now it is on the public to get involved. I firmly believe that when you give them a little love, you've given them a lot. The core issue is that the homeless are isolated. Nobody wants them around.

Hi I'm Rick from Orlando Florida. We have seen an explosion of the numbers of men women children vets and on and on and on. The existing social service groups are consistently be hit with budget cuts. So now it is on the public to get involved. I firmly believe that when you give them a little love, you've given them a lot. The core issue is that the homeless are isolated. Nobody wants them around. It's not rocket science how to fix this problem. If you think that once person can't make a difference. Think about this, if a community got together and and each person that wanted to get involved went out and found someone that wanted help, and worked with that one person. Be the light that shines in someone else's eyes.

We must ask ourselves "WHY" is this allowed to happen? We are one of the richest countries in the world, everywhere you look there are vacant buildings laying to waste. WHY are people sleeping in cardboard boxes? If we are a GOD fearing nation how long will this continue to go on, What about the 13 million.

I spent my entire life working with the homeless mentally ill, almost 40 years, and though I'm retired now due to medical disability, my commitment has not ended, it has just slowed me down a little. I may take smaller steps but still moving toward the same goal - to end homelessness for this fragile population. Rev Dr Jesse Bateau.

We can become informed and do our part no matter how small, because when you are homeless, hungry and struggling to survive-every little bit helps to fend off that terrible sense of hopelessness~.

I have been involved and aware of the homelessness in SF for decades - first as a social worker and later as a retiree. As a native San Franciscan, I am in culture shock in my own "home town" over housing costs including rentals which have been going up since the dot.com industry began. Most of my friends have moved out of San Francisco because they cannot afford the costs or the few remaining have rent control. At least we have housing - so many do not. Homelessness is a national problem...

I have been involved and aware of the homelessness in SF for decades - first as a social worker and later as a retiree. As a native San Franciscan, I am in culture shock in my own "home town" over housing costs including rentals which have been going up since the dot.com industry began. Most of my friends have moved out of San Francisco because they cannot afford the costs or the few remaining have rent control. At least we have housing - so many do not. Homelessness is a national problem and needs to be dealt with nationally. I believe housing, along with food and healthcare are basic human rights.
