Have you picked up a self-help book from the bookstore recently? Our worldly culture is constantly telling us to build ourselves up and to always consider our needs first and to think highly of ourselves. But did you know that bible tells us to behave exactly the opposite, to pursue and have ...

Hundreds of boys and girls have been rounded up from doorways and roadsides by police and officials and put behind bars in recent weeks to make the poverty-racked city more presentable when Pope Francis arrives tomorrow.

#HomelessEcoVille the best way to get people off the streets is to help them to setup a self supporting life :-) Share and if possible, donate.

Agreed, Oscur. We tried to source the funding from 'Corporate America' and the greed and indifference were unbelievable.

Now we want to do a Crowdfunder and ask homeless folks to support us, because it's likely they'd care.

If anyone can help us do that, we'd welcome the input.

We must all take a stand against poverty, homelessness, and hunger. Only when we take a stand together can we make a change.

This is not "now"... this has been for more than a dozen years across our country.  From 2001 on, Las Vegas Nevada Mayor Oscar Goodman raided several churches that served the homeless in their church side-yards and cited professional casino chefs for serving the homeless on the streets (when I was named Ronald Kinum before I changed my name legally to Libris Fidelis, I was homeless when I wrote a letter to the editor of the Las Vegas Review Journal in 2002 about this, that was published under a title taken from a line in my letter "Oscar Mayor Goodman Gives The Big Weenie To The Homeless).

An amazing group of Hollywood producers, directors and executives address such topical issues as Human Trafficking and Homelessness.
 Winter Shelter Manager Brenda Threatt said, "Just treat homeless people like human beings, that's all they want."

This is our project to rehouse homeless children. We're now prepping a crowdfunder to raise the seed funds and we'd welcome your ideas...

SF Catholic Church uses drought water to drench #homeless people. https://unicornbooty.com/sf-church-uses-drought-water-to-humiliate-homeless-people/ 
Facing the worst drought in 1,000 years, one California church is using its water to wash homeless folks off of their steps — it's like Baptism, only not.

Exposure of domestic black site suddenly legitimizes what the homeless have been saying since shortly after the contracts to staff these "emergency relocation centers" came out almost three years ago!

We can and must reorient our priorities to care for those who truly need our attention. Let's care about something real for a change, shall we?

We care so much about this, it's almost painful.

2.6-million US children currently have no safe place to live, so we developed a way to rehouse them.

The plan will relieve the banks of 1.6+ million empty homes, rehouse as many homeless families as need help [at no cost to them or the taxpayers,] *and add $6+ billion to this wonderful nation's economy in just the first two years.

One snag - No-one else cares.

We've been searching for the seed funds for more than six months, and the indifference among 'Corporate America' has been nothing short of brutal.

The project can be scaled to help as many children as need it. There is no catch. If we could just get it started, a lot of great kids would escape a lot of undeserved pain. And it's well past time they had that chance :-/

Any input or ideas from the group would be more than welcome.

He gives 400 local #homeless folks a gift on his birthday. Whatta guy?? :) | #homelessness #teamaok #thepope
After Pope Francis got a cake and an impromptu tango flash mob for his 78th birthday Wednesday, he made sure Rome’s homeless got a gift, too -- sleeping bags emblazoned with the papal coat of arms. The pontiff donated 400 of the sleeping bags to homeless people in the Italian capital, the Vatican...

I picked this us for the Sacramento Homeless blog. I wouldn't say that making the guys wear Nazi Concentration Camp yellow triangles could ever happen here in Sac, but there are well-intended people who would like to "track" the homeless closely.

There are legitimate reasons to want some kind of tracking. To reduce the high death rate! To aid doctors; ambulances. But, yes, homeless people need freedoms as much as anyone.

I like seeing this type of collaboration. More areas could stand to look at Models like this.
OVE is a collaboration between the housed and the unhoused providing stable, safe, and sustainable places to be through alternative, cost-effective approaches for transitioning the unhoused to more permanent living situations...

As a former homeless person, I have great concern for sanitation.  Where is a toilet?  That was my greatest concern when I was homeless, where to go to the bathroom.

In North Las Vegas we had a Hepatitis Type D problem at the Salvation Army, which briefly shut down the Salvation Army dining facilities.

Hepatitis D is the only form of Hepatitis that is able to be spread airborne, and when it was discovered, it was traced to the Union Pacific railroad track beside the dining facility where someone with Hepatitis D had been sleeping and defecating.  They closed the dining facility for two weeks, fenced off the track from the dining facility, and sprayed some sort of disinfectant on the area.
