Homelessness

Homelessness and Neighborhoods

It seems that the city of Seattle has given SHARE and various churches the right to make decisions about neighborhoods that do not include participation of the residents of those neighborhoods. Putting homeless people in tents in the middle of winter in Seattle is NOT a solution to homelessness! Why can't the city put the money we are currently giving to SHARE into establishing warm, water-tight shelters (eg, buildings) and low income housing for homeless people? When are we going to learn that separation of church and state needs to be a principle upon which our city operates, not one that is ignored?
