Re: Faith, private, foundation and non-profit efforts are moving forward.
I am concerned that the “emergency room” which is desperately needed will get lost as these become forms of permanent housing and not places of refuge.
@Peter I’m concerned about this, too. Fancy villages with 2 yr residency limits and wraparound services are lovey and they make for great press releases. But we’ve got THOUSANDS OF people who need shelter NOW.
When the fires burned 100s of homes last year, we didnt tell those people to sleep in the bushes for a couple years while we built fancy camps and bickered about zoning. We set up tents and cots right away. I’d take a 1000 “basic” villages / camps over 5 “fancy” villages any day of the week…
