  • Homeless?

    Do you feel compelled to assist them?

    Thanks.

    If you insist on using the word "compelled" then no I don't.

    All of us could take a lesson from the weather. It pays no attention to criticism.

      It certainly depends on the nature of why they are homeless. I'm against just providing for people unwilling to work towards better results.

      I've spent a good amount of time working with youth centers and dealing with teenagers who have been kicked out of their homes. A society that rejects their own children is tough to accept.

          There was a time when my addictions had taken over....depending on how much money I had would decide what I would do with it.A 5 was cheap rum and smokes,10 now I had enough for a beer chaser,20 and we are talking drugs.....food was never even on the list.Been clean and sober awhile now.
          Once in awhile I'll give a guy a 5 but I know what it will be used for.

            we re built a rescue mission and we were putting in bed rooms for the homeless to live as they worked .for the homeless that did not want to work they had a large bunk room that they could spend a couple nights after they took a drug test .
            so i believe in helping the homeless that want to help them self's.

            there were some good people there that just fell on hard times and they just need a little help like your parents helped you out when you needed it

                Depends on the situation.
                My SIL called the other day hinting around that they are about to get kicked out yet again. She will get ZERO help from us. The hard part is her children. She often calls for milk, clothes, food or whatever. It really pi$$es me off when we show up with food for the kids and she has a full pack of smokes and her husband has an ice cold 40. I know exactly whats going on but I can't turn my back on the kids.

                I have absolutely no sympathy for those that are not willing to help themselves.
                If one is able to hold a sign begging for food/money then they can easily hold a stop/slow sign and become a flagger.
                "will work for food" yeah right, I've asked several and they always decline the offer.

                I have opened the doors to my home on a good number of occasions to help family/friends and will continue to do so as long as they are willing to help themselves.

                My buddy and I ducked under a bridge one evening in Boston to sneak a beer. I found a bag containing soap, tooth paste, socks...etc. Obviously belonging to someone on the streets. The thing that got me the most though was, also in the bag was a job application. I left him a note and a $20.

                  Since this is what I do for a living I must feel compelled! I work with homeless single parents 18-24 with one child under 5. They are typically homeless because they emancipated from the foster care system, they got pregnant and were told to leave or there were too many people living under one roof. During their stay in our transitional housing program the parents either obtain their GED, High School diploma, or vocational training and/ or work while their children get childcare in our licensed on-site center. They move from our program into permanent housing as productive members of society.

                    That is a wonderfull program but I'm curious how many really follow through and do become productive and how many wind up living off of you and I. It seems like so many young folks in these kinds of situations just become the dregs of society.

                      I had to do plumbing work in a place like this, and we was told not to communicate with the women while working in their rooms, and they could not be in the room while we was working. Always in some type of meeting were we allowed in.

                      I was actually pretty decent looking at the time, tan and not hanging over my belly belt 3 feet.

                      Some big fat woman yelled out one day as they were all outside, "I gots to have me a tall man to take care of my babies!"

                      I neutral dropped that van and laid a black mark 60 feet. Got out of there quick before I became a casualty. The risks I take as a plumber are serious.

                          Do I feel compelled to help the homeless? The answer to that would be NO.

                          But I would rather help the homeless on my own, then have the government TELL ME I have too.
