What I Have to Tell You is Different

I translate Homeless services into Soccer Mom speech. Andy Bales of @URM can tell you about housing homeless folks and running a shelter agency. I am currently running two homeless shelters but his view is more salient than mine. Through him I have discovered officer Joseph, a man who wears a badge and walks theContinue reading “What I Have to Tell You is Different”

The Union Rescue Mission Lives

Last year Darla went to the #SheDoes protest on Los Angeles’ City Hall Steps. She said it was scary and it must be sad to have no money when the bank buildings are your night light.

Often homelessness is caused – not by lack of resources- but by the unwise spending of resources. (Gas to go farContinue reading “Learning to be Housed”

It Came! and who should be a role model?

I am overjoyed to find @abales of @URM in my mail box at work today. It is a little like Christmas and I am super happy to be rewarded for dragging myself into the office today. My happy dance and small shouts of “It came, It Came!” has prompted a somewhat steady stream of onlookers toContinue reading “It Came! and who should be a role model?”

Portnoy Please! (Aka I am a groupie)

@danPortnoy and @portnoymedia are not the name brand main stream names you think of when you think of Media Hype and Internet Chic… but only if you are really uncool.
