Joe Tarr (Isthmus) reports on last night’s demo and Homeless Issues Committee meeting, where, you guessed it, a day resource center was on the agenda. Pat Schneider has also written about it.
Because I’m feeling rather nostalgic this evening, I thought I would link to blogposts in 2011 and 2012 that addressed the same issue.
From August, 2012: “A day shelter for Madison” (in which I talk about a patient discharged from the VA hospital and sent to Grace)
From October, 2012
From November, 2012 (my testimony before the County Board of Supervisors)
From November, 2011 (with links to earlier developments in the story)
Couldn’t we all just save energy by referring back to these earlier debates and conversations? It’s political football season again, with our vulnerable homeless population serving as the football, getting kicked around by bureaucrats and elected officials.
