One response to “How We End Homelessness! – A Forum

  1. I do not believe we should enable homelessness here in Durango. Vagrancy should be illegal here. It’s not fair to our residents and local business owners. Many homeless people are smoking cigarettes $10 per pack, own a dog, expensive to feed, and have refused work when offered in response to their sign will work for food. This forum is enabling homelessness and will ultimately attract more and more homeless people and it’s an expense on our local society. People have relocated to not be near areas where homeless people hang out like parks. It’s simply not fair to Durango. Perhaps the churches supporting this movement should offer a roof for the homeless in their church buildings or even in their own parishioners ‘ homes.
