Is the City Council planning on opening another homeless shelter, or contributing funds to the much-needed expansion of the Poverello Center? If homeless folks had a place to go, with food, shelter, and medical/social services available, perhaps they would not feel the need to panhandle. Seems like this does nothing to confront the actual problem at hand.
Beautifully written Jayme. Judy B. and all of us that know you are smiling I am quite sure. The holiday is pesky and complicated for most of us and it is true death fractures families like little else. Forging a new normal is the challenge.
The truly sad back story for our community & Russ Talmo's unfortunate assault. Thank you Jessica Mayrer for this piece. I think moving forward with the healing process starts with raising community awareness of senseless violence around Missoula and helping raise support for crime victims like Russ. Please pitch in if you can:
