Comment on The waste of public housing by Doug Mac.

Hi Hal, I knew you at Kent, 1959.
The homeless have many issues that I work with in trying to feed them. I do know that private initiatives vs public agencies are far more able to respond to specific issues than the government’s view of the general plight.
At my church we bought some houses that were suffering the same problems.
We try to vet the tenants and their history to avoid drug dealer past associations.
I visit the families weekly to get a sense of whether they are moving ahead or backsliding.
This requires a constant vigilance that is not possible with governmental policies.
I pray for the best outcome.
Best regards,
Doug Macmillan
