@1800Got Junk Bait and Switch

I help a lot of people move in and out of shelters, encampments, apartments, and sometimes garages. Occasionally we find that people accumulated more than they needed and sometimes it is junk that needs to be thrown away. I don’t like to refer any program or service I have not first tried. Fortunately I hateContinue reading “@1800Got Junk Bait and Switch”

My personal Update

When Solutions Sound Like Punishment

I am following conversations about how to reduce the number of homeless people living on the streets of Los Angeles. I have very patiently been reading without comment.

AB 516 at LA City Hall

Should Los Angeles tow the RVs people live in on the streets of Los Angeles? Me? I don’t think so any person wants to live in an RV but this “housing adjacent” state is better than being on the street proper. It is storage for food that stretches food budgets, it is privacy and aContinue reading “AB 516 at LA City Hall”

Restrictions have been placed to keep you away from parks, schools and day cars. (Apparently the LA City council thinks you are all child molesters ?)

E-Media | Los Angeles Public Library

Bookworms rock! I used to make them as a volunteer for the Arcadia Library in my teen summers. The Los Angeles City Library blows my mind as the local leader in embracing high tech solutions and applications. I thought I was cool because of Freegal Music and my Overdrive use. Wow. I underestimated. The LosContinue reading “E-Media | Los Angeles Public Library”

Death on Crocker St -revisited

Death on Crocker St. This is my throwback Thursday link. Living out in the element with no shelter, sunblock, reliable nutrition, healthcare, clean toilets, leads to a shortened life.   Thousands of years ago humans had a shorter life span. In third world countries people died like this. But this is in Los Angeles :myContinue reading “Death on Crocker St -revisited”
