Homeless people need help

Published: Friday, Mar. 7, 2014 - 10:03 am

Re "Not all homeless are victims" (Letters, March 2): Letter writer Robert Parrish obviously knows nothing about the homeless situation. The homeless are not made up of people looking for a handout. Many of the homeless are dealing with mental illness. They are not all undeserving with bad behaviors who squander scarce resources. When Parrish writes "making homeless people more comfortable discourages the slothful from becoming self reliant," does he think it is right people should be out in the cold without shelter? How heartless. -- Linda L. Johnson, Carmichael
