Sign the pledge! " homeless people can face discrimination in employment, housing, access to services, and even in the *** ability to be in public space***"(emphasis mine). Stand up for Houseless people!

I do have the experience of living hand-to-mouth; being a homeless youth; discrimination due to lack of multiple forms of ID and so on. It makes getting out the ditch so much harder, especially when you have "pulled yourself up by the bootstraps" so often that they broke a while back.

I live in CA, and while far from ideal or not as humane as can be, I am watching a friend suffer needlessly in CO where even the usual agencies or methods of getting help are not available. I am suddenly aware...

I do have the experience of living hand-to-mouth; being a homeless youth; discrimination due to lack of multiple forms of ID and so on. It makes getting out the ditch so much harder, especially when you have "pulled yourself up by the bootstraps" so often that they broke a while back.

I live in CA, and while far from ideal or not as humane as can be, I am watching a friend suffer needlessly in CO where even the usual agencies or methods of getting help are not available. I am suddenly aware of how complacent I have become regarding homelessness or nearly so outside my bubble.

Chronic homelessness needs to be addressed here as well as catching folks before they fall deeper in the hole because it is so much harder to get back out.

While the housing market has picked up, there are still many properties out there under Bank management from foreclosure.

I would like to see a partnership with Habitat for Humanity and/or other civic groups make a coordinated effort to get people into those homes. They would be paying rent by taking care of the property and maintaining it, reporting anything that is not up to code.
while oversight would be performed by the coalition.

The community would do better:
The neighbors wouldn't have an eyesore or a magnet for mischief and such and their property values would improve.

What are the bill of rights that they are actually proposing?

Sounds good. I'm curious to see what it says. Obviously, I can't support a freedom that involves a violation of someone else's freedom, but if it passes that rule, I will support it!

Los Angeles is the Homeless capitol of the nation, we need to do something right here at home. It is criminal how many people walk the streets un-noticed and uncared for in our country. It could be you out there, then would it matter?

I have lived in the rust belt all of my life. My people go to churches for used but not abused clothes. Used cars are in real demand. We use Nuwave cookers, Eden Pure heaters, we coast and go very slow in our cars when others aren’t around.

never take vacations and once in awhile I eat out. But when I dine my water and ice box is not far behind.

To All Young Americans You Can Do Better!

It's time for Americans to rally despite our differences of race religion and creed. Alot of people overseas hate us and we will never change their minds no matter how hard we try. So possibly a better way to go would be to boot strap ourselves out of this overall mess. I have listed a few sites as positive resouces here and other matter you would be well off to know about. Thanks for looking :)
