A Slice of Homeless Life on the East Coast

A follower of Homeless In America sends in this story via U.S. Mail from Myrtle Beach, SC, Thursday, September 3, 2009, The Sun News: Myrtle Beach, a beach community attracting many homeless living on the East Coast, the officials there are asking for the jurisdiction to write more citations inside county property inside the city in order to break up areas where homeless people habitually camp. Meanwhile, the city has asked property owners to clear out undergrowth - for example on the lot next to Street Reach, (a homeless food and day services ministry) where homeless people have been camping. Homeless In America visited Street Reach and reported on it about one year ago (see Thursday, June 24, 2008).

Be sure to scroll down a few rolls and view yesterday's post - a short movie titled, Homeless Purgatory. The film is both entertaining and thought provoking.

Please take a moment to donate online for this week’s StreetReach to homeless living under bridges and in the alleyways of downtown Los Angeles. There is a need for a water sponsor, $20 - a food sponsor, $125 and sponsors are needed for van insurance $50 and upkeep $300. God bless you for your compassion and help for the Homeless In America.
