Re: “Why House of Charity refuses to feed most panhandlers

I am saddemed by the comment from the director of a homeless shelter. It is not fair to put all people who solicit for money in one group who all have bad motives and do not deserve the generosity of others. Spokane is a low income town and rents are steadily rising. Many people do not make enough to pay for rent and other essentials. I would rather help someone in need to prevent an eviction that would add to homelessness than turn my back on a fellow human being. I don't judge a person by appearances and someone serving the needs of the homeless shouldn't either. It is time to consider a career change.

Re: “Advice for Advocates

Thank you for providing direction for those who feel overwhelmed, powerless and afraid. The next step is to find your community in Spokane. One suggestion is the Tenants Union of Washington State who organize for housing justice and tenant protection. With the low vacancy rate in rental housing and lack of policy, tenants in Spokane live at risk of homelessness every day. The new administration proposes to severely cut HUD funding for rental housing. Contact 509.464.7620 or terria@tenantsunion.org to get involved. For others, find your passion and look for one of the many grassroots organizing groups in Spokane and join. If you can't find one start one on your own. Then lets get to work, together.

Re: “'Unreasonable Threat to Life and Property'

Yes, he is. He also submitted a budget that said that he only makes $1400.00 a year in profit being a landlord. This budget was debunked by an independent analysis that determined that even with the questionable numbers this landlord earned 36% on his investment. Compared to interest on a savings account, this number is staggering.
