One thought on “Natchitoches Coalition on Homelessness

  1. How does a park help the homeless. Are they allowed to sleep there? Sorry but I just don’t get it. The city is tooting its horn about spending money on a park, which is a good thing for the children and families of the area. But just how does this tie into homelessness? Seems like two separate issues to me. Bad idea or poor reporting? By the way, I’m ok with upgrading our park systems, it’s long over due. I’m also for helping those that are homeless. But a patk? I sure hope money that was intended for the homeless wasn’t spent on a park upgrade instead of what it was devoted too. I can’t tell from the story, it must be my simple mind.
