Re: “Reader: The homeless issues aren't getting any better

Mr. Harvey,

Thank you for your letter regarding homelessness. I agree with you that homelessness is a problem and I am very sorry to hear that you have struggled with it in the past. I can only imagine the difficulties you must have faced. I have never been homeless myself, nor personally known a homeless person, but I have done what I could to help. I have donated many items to homeless shelter, bought meals for homeless people and families in need, and I have helped serve meals at the homeless shelter. I feel very blessed to be in a position to do what I can to help those in need.

While I see your point of view on homeless people needing safe places where they can shower, obtain clean clothes, hot meals, and sleep, not everybody is in a position to provide this. I understand and agree that lives matter more than money, but not everybody is going to be comfortable opening their homes to complete strangers. I do not think this makes them bad people or worthless. There are many other ways people can and do help.

For example, people can donate socks, gloves, clothes, coats or household items. People can donate their time to helping out at a homeless shelter or delivering needed items directly to the homeless. People can also start clothing drives or fundraisers to help homeless programs. While to some this may not seem like enough, to others, this is life changing. I encourage everybody to get out and do what they can to help the homeless population. A little bit can go a long way.

Thank you!

Mrs. Perry, Colorado Springs
