After spending an excessive amount of time with the homeless; interviewing, visiting their self-made homes, feeding, and providing clothing etc., I have found that things are never what the appear to be. Everyone has a story to tell, they just need someone to listen. I have been helping the homeless for 10 years now, and each year my passion has grown to another level. It has never weighed as heavy on my heart as it does today, that WE/TOGETHER must start some place a little different in getting the homeless off the street.
ASAOCC's goal is to provide a 15 bed temporary shelter at night for the homeless, while working on permanent assistance programs for them during the day. NO, a night shelter is not a stop sign, it's a move in the right direction for permenant housing, jobs, and education among other things. We need your HELP! Please Help Us Help Others.
