The article reads: "Churches stress a lot of questions would have to be answered: Who would staff the shelters?"
Instead of throwing the whole project onto the churches, who may or may not understand the complexity of homelessness, why not support those people (Patti McKenzie) who truly want to help the homeless find a better life? There's a difference between caring for individuals as NEIGHBORS and FRIENDS, as opposed to just shoving the situation under a rug, which it appears some of the people interviewed had in mind when they were asked for comment. I agree that there are many possible routes to take on the issue of homelessness. But there are volunteers willing and able to devote their lives to others who are currently homeless, and they should be encouraged, not ignored.
