The city of Chico needs to fund or build more shelters for homeless folks. The Torres shelter and Jesus Center shelter are nearly always filled to capacity these days and many folks are without housing and left out in the cold. The city of San Diego has created four homeless shelters funded by their city's housing agency and a federal "Moving to Work" grant. Perhaps we need to talk to the folks in San Diego about how to replicate these in Chico.

How can we call ourselves civilized while leaving so many to suffer outside? Let's get going with more shelters.

Compassion is necessary. We must care for each other.

Misery is growing in this country. Abandoning people to the elements is a death sentence. We don't have to be a barbaric society that does that. We need to provide basic accommodation and assistance to all Americans. Our society will flourish as a result and misery will eventually disappear because it has no room in modern, civilized nations anyway.

"While people who are houseless wait for affordable housing to be built, allowing them to wait in the gutter, especially without basic needs for human survival is wrong and inhumane."

Did any of you ever wonder why Jarvis Gardens is so small, sitting on that huge lot? That's the kind of shelter we should be building, but there are so many little agencies competing for the money, nothing ever gets done.
