THE HOMELESS MATTER ALSO !
Organized by: Tazhanay Lewis
I am a 15 year old Sophomore attending Robert Lindblom Math & Science Academy and I have a voice , you have a voice , they have a voice and we should ALL be heard. So many people walk or drive past homeless people and stare... Could you imagine that being you ? On the corner, blue in the face cold in the winter; no coat, no heat , just the cold air. I feel that I can change that ! Think about shelters, yes they do provide some place for the homeless to stay, but how reliable are some shelters ? Terribble health conditions; so many different people come in with all different types of diseases available for everyone else in the shelter to catch, which could possibly cause death. All types of people come in, drug dealers,prostitues , even children...is that really a safe environment? My goal over the next two years is to remove all homeless off of the street into a shelter , but my goal also is to change these shelters , improve the health , the food , the service. I want these people to feel safe here, I want them to feel like they're in a place that they can call home. I hope to expand these shelters and give them something new and improved. I hope to provide more workers in a shelter , ones who actually are there to help and aren't there just for pay. I have big goals and massive ideas for this project, but what can I do without any money. That is why I have come to you all , to ask for help , to ask for your funding to ask that you all would donate , to help me help them... THE HOMELESS MATTER ALSO !
