  1. hello praise God and thank you for the good work that you are doing.we need help for homeless young children here in uganda kampala in africa.mathew 25:35 says For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’
    37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’

    40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
    thanx

    if a person is homeless and cannot find a job, how exactly will they pay for a shelter bed?

    this thinking has never made sense to me, and most of the people who run these places make 50-100k a year

    they are poverty pimps plain and simple getting a fat paycheck from the homeless man’s pocket

    deny?

    • sad says:

      unfortunately this is true. i’ve been to many of these places looking for help and they’re all so far away as far as walking distance is concerned. it takes days of walking miles and blisters just to find a place that may want to help. the real problem that i’ve seen with homelessness in san jose isn’t that there around enough “shelters” around town but that they are so exclusive and provide limited services not to mention low quality services. i come from a place where the community comes together to help the homeless. some churches do outreach and give food directly to the homeless, give hope and compassion, there are day centers where the homeless can spend the day, to stay away from drugs and alcohol, find work, have community, receive mail and phone calls.

      most important for myself and other homeless people i know is taking a shower, laundry or exchanging dirty clothes for clean clothes, food.

      i think most homeless people are not necessarily looking for a home first and foremost, but just to have food, community and showers (smelling bad and dirty clothes makes people hate the homeless, not want to be around them, make them feel bad which can lead to low self confidence, dehumanization, anger, violence, and exclusion from society. excluding people from society and giving them the identity of homeless and they will fill that role. they will permanently not want to be part of society and can develop long term psychological problems to a short term circumstance of not having an address.

      i suggest loving our neighbor as ourselves, treating homeless as people (they are people) helping them with their burdens and if we can, help them with their problems such as income, mental health and housing. i think to some degree low income/homeless are victims of a larger economic problem that doesn’t go away in any community. the answer is not for them to just get a job, if you want to end poverty, create jobs, pay a living wage. if all the homeless people could get new clothes, trained and get jobs tomorrow that would displace the people currently in those jobs. its not as if walmart is closing at 4 pm because there aren’t enough employees applying. you can’t just tell people to get jobs. the jobs are filled, what will you do with the displaced unemployed “get a job” is not a solution its a scapegoat.

    You are so right db, I stayed at Innvision at the Montgomery st address and it is an awful disgusting place, where nothing gets cleaned or fixed and the food is terriable and every night someone gets something stolen.
    They had a backed up toilet with fecees in it and it didn’t get cleaned/fixed for a month. I will never go back there agian–stay away from Innvision. The Salvation army is a bit better and cleaner and better food, but it’s also a lot smaller, not so many beds.
