    That happened to your friend, but as you say, there's no causal relationship there between homeless people who catch a lucky break and bad things people do.

    Good people do bad things everyday, and bad people do bad things everyday; the reverse of both is also true.

    Take care

    Notice a lack of personal attacks in my comments. I expect no less from you.

    •  A group of churches in my area (0+ / 0-)

      banded together with the city, and founded a center for the homeless and those at risk to provide shower and laundry facilities, an address for them to receive mail, computer labs for training and job search, some limited housing (the city was worried about "flophouses"), and mainly a place where they could talk and share their experiences. Since the center opened I've seen a lot fewer folks hanging out on the streets -- many of them just needed sympathetic ears once in a while. And it gives an option for those who are leery about taking in the homeless or giving money directly.
