Just read an awesome piece about Camp Hope in the LC Sun this morning. I was moved to comment to the article directly but the Sun requires facebook login. Whoops, don’t do facebook. Tried to find Peter’s contact info on his blog, whoops not there. So I thought “why not post it on our blog!”
And my heart-felt comment:
Thank you for your insightful piece about Camp Hope. It provides valuable encouragement and perspective to many who feel that the issues of homelessness are just too great to effectively or economically deal with. As you have positively pointed out – they are not. I truly believe if there is one community in our great country which can take the word “intractable” out of dealing with the needs of the homeless, it is the intelligent and humane souls of Las Cruces. Thank you for caring.
