What does Largo Wales mean when she says she will give the homeless a “hand up, not a hand out?”
I thought that Nancy Backus’ approval of the Ray of Hope Resource Center was an indication of her position of helping the the homeless to have jobs, housing and to become useful citizens.
Of course, we know that some homeless are so mentally damaged they may never become normal. Perhaps the behavioral health addition to Allenmore Hospital will help some of them?
Wales said that Backus committed $400,000 to this project without council approval. Backus said, “I did
not, cannot commit $400,000 the council has not approved.”
Who is telling the truth here?
Also, what does Largo Wales mean when she says she will give the homeless a hand up? What is the “one-step shop?”
More details please.
