Great post about such services that are truly needed in this country.  I know one day is not enough but for sure it will help many.

Hi Roy Kelley ,  That sure is a nice thing to have in the community.  The homeless could use the information nd medical testing.

Our little town only had one self imposed homeless man. He passed last summer. We may have one more but I am  not too sure. This is a great program to have. Our town will need to have something else to help the community.

I wish there were perfect answers for homelessness.  I think ideally, a center that would triage them and provide services, depending on their individual needs.  Some have mental issues or addictions.  Some are vets, others just seem to like living on the streets.
