We are not degrading homelessness. However, when the mess individuals make begin to effect our clients, our company takes action. This is just one of the several recent tear downs we have faced. Our community has resources for the homeless. However, when the public provides additional “resources” many times these items are simply left abandoned. Clothes, coats, trash, blankets, mattresses, etc. Even providing individuals money instead of a meal can cause more harm than good.
We encourage you to think about this when handing out additional “resources”. They may be helpful for a very short time, but in the long run they’re harmful to the environment. Additionally, our clients are left with the bill to clean up the mess.
