Re: “A place of their own

I am really glad that the Independent did the research to determine exactly where and what resources are available. Thank you also for questioning what will happen after Homeward Pikes Peak runs out of the $100,000 they were given to keep people at the Express Inn.

The Express Inn is not a shelter. Security does not have training on how to deal with people suffering with mental illness and already I have heard reports of people being kicked back on the street again.

As houseless folks move into temporary hotels, they don't have anywhere to keep their camping equipment and will be even worse off if they can't find a job within the next couple weeks.

Maybe it's time we accepted the fact that we are in an economic downturn and the city cut all public transit that would allow people to get to night and weekend jobs.
