Unacceptable: No Option, No Exit for Waco Homeless Families
The reality is thousands of kids and families in this community (and beyond) need a safety net. And they don’t have one.
My fantasy would be a forum of articulate parents and kids to address community leaders, elected officials and school personnel. These experts could share stories of plight and promise that they face every day. And the audience would not be released to their comfy homes until they committed to solve the crises with the same fervor used on other lesser issues.
Decision-makers and their families need to walk in the shoes of families and youth struggling to survive homelessness. They'd be running for the exits within hours. For most of these families and youth, no exit exists.
