This video is an introduction to a movement to build clean, safe homeless camps. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tBWhgjXrKaY There are links to more information. The minimal camp consists of a few tent spaces, a few chemical toilets and a dumpster. That is a good beginning. It solves the immediate problems of trash and unsanitary conditions in the community. Many camps are costing less than $2.00 per person per day. This reduces the costs of patrolling hidden sites and cleaning them up. Eventually I see something with tent sites or tent cabins, restrooms, showers, laundry, cafeteria, kitchen, recreation room, childcare, garbage disposal, bus stop and possibly other social services. Many homeless are employed or on support and could pay the couple dollars per day that these kinds of shelters are costing. The result is cleaner, healthier, safer communities and greater stability for homeless people to rebuild their lives. Something like this could be done in a City or County park. A program like this could be done in conjunction with the several Cities within the County.
