We are talking about housing for homeless families who are in desperate need of shelter, why should there be so much disapproval in this act?
Providing relief to those who need it should be something the community should support, where will the people go without it? The city doesn't meet the needs of homeless and has not been able to get to the root cause of this problem. Due to this lack the city should put more effort into rent assistance and job readiness for the marginalized.
Another homeless shelter that serves families, single mothers and children as specified by Black from DHS should be something the Elmhurst community should have.
Just blocks away from the proposed site is New Life Fellowship, which is already helping the poor & marginalized with relief efforts, restoration and the encouragement of reinvestment, through there food and clothing pantry, health center and homeless ministry. The New Life Community Development Corporation is addressing the essentials that the city should take. So why not have the homeless shelter in this neighborhood that is already meeting the needs of those in despair?
I'm an active citizen from Elmhurst and support this plan.
