  • Dear Editor,
    I really enjoyed the article about the homeless liaison, Doug Dubendorf. It sounds like he relates to these individuals as people and not as things that need sweeping off the streets.
    I would have loved to hear more about the people that are chronic homeless in our county. I am sure there are some veterans, that served our country proudly,and because of lack of benefits, or lack of treatment for PTSD, which the VA is just now taking seriously because of the amount of suicide among recent vets, or they are people that have work histories that had some crisis land them homeless.
    It is so important to see these people as human beings that have fallen on hard luck that need social programs as intervention, rather than throw-aways that need jailing. The former costs much less for the community as a whole in the long run and will have far more impact on lessening of the homeless population.
    I am an assistant that helps homeless families get back on their feet after job loss or medical emergency. With a little help and intervention, these families do great things.
