City’s homeless employment program is a good first step
Letter to the Editor
Just like responsible parents teach their children to pick up and clean up after themselves, so it is with the homeless. We have to start somewhere; the next step is rewarding them so they are interested in getting on the ladder to success.
My wife and I retired here over 10 years ago. We worked with Silver Key delivering Meals on Wheels and the Miracle Meter Program, while it was in existence, so we know firsthand that knocking a program in its infancy is not the right way to go.
It has been discussed in Avenue Task Force meetings that Colorado Springs is the place to go if you are homeless because of all the charitable programs offered.
