Mama D lost her apartment in San Antonio, Texas. She has cancer and is out in the streets. But now the city only has one homeless services so she'd rather sleep outside then be in 'prison'

Haven For Hope is a newly opened shelter in town. I only spent a little time there. Although the facility is impressive their solution seems more like institutionalizing homelessness.

Please note that I never asked anyone to speak about this shelter, yet in every interview that was the topic. Street talk about services is not always honest, but in this situation, and from my own tour of Haven of Hope, I have to agree that this is not a way to treat people. Even for my interview they only allowed me to talk to the Head of Secretary.

The 'airport security' and giving people the title of "prospects" and "members" gave me the creeps. But my concern is that homeless people in San Antonio are no longer given the freedom of choice.

    under the bridge: the criminalization of homelessness

    by MIRO

  • Dick Fischbeck

    Have you read "Down and Out in Paris and London" by George Orwell?
    ---------------
    "It is worth saying something about the social position of beggars, for when one has consorted with them, and found that they are ordinary human beings, one cannot help being struck by the curious attitude that society takes towards them. People seem to feel that there is some essential difference between beggars and ordinary ‘working’ men. They are a race apart—outcasts, like criminals and prostitutes. Working men ‘work’, beggars do not ‘work’; they are parasites, worthless in their very nature. It is taken for granted that a beggar does not ‘earn’ his living, as a bricklayer or a literary critic ‘earns’ his. He is a mere social excrescence, tolerated because we live in a humane age, but essentially despicable."
