Chico's emergency shelters are full and turning away homeless people.  I saw Patty sleeping on a sidewalk.  Our recent "Point in Time" survey of the housing challenged talked to 1800 people.  Chico's vacancy rate is 1%.  It's time to call our City Councilors and ask them to declare a "Shelter Crisis".  That could expedite several ways to help address our homeless issue.

Chico Housing Action Team has been able to get about 25 formerly homeless people into housing.  We are working to establish a tiny home village.  We need volunteers.  If you have an hour a week and would like more satisfaction in your life, call Charles 530-518-1417.

The question really is, "How long will we
allow them to suffer, until we decide that they are worthy of help?"  And the answer will say more about us than it does about them.
