Re: “Eureka Police Seek New Leverage Against Homeless on Third Street

6 years ago, I was homeless in Eureka. My tent was by the bay, my food was from miss Betty and free meal. My clothes were from the free store. I saw the drugs, alcohol, and crime from the inside. I also saw the anguish and the pain the homeless were experiencing at how they were being treated. Drug and alcohol abuse, and some mental disibilties are made worse if those suffering are abused more. I got housed because I achieved stability by creating a drug and alcohol free homeless camp in Berkeley. I suggest that if you allow the homeless to help themselves in a responsibly run camp, you will help some. After seven months in Berkeley, The Poor Tour has not had one problem. The homeless involved understand the importance of The Poor Tour as an example of how to do it. The camp has cost the city zero money, and has wide community support. Over twenty saved enough money to house themselves, or move on. To help the homeless, the city needs get them stable. Stability means no hours of operation, no need to ever have your gear on you, and the ability to come and go as you please.

It's horribly cold and wet in Eureka. Not at all a good place to be homeless.
